TUT How rude, I've been brought up better than this

Hy girls and guys,

I am Joost (that's Dutch: J as in You, OO as in Okay, ST) from Holland or The Netherlands as some prefer. I drive a 1972 Giulia Super 1300, with a 1.6 engine with KN sportfilters.

Since I have already posted 55, make that 56, comments/threads I sincerely hope you'll forgive me my late introduction. I should have known better. Sorry mum, I was simply overwhelmed by all this Alfa extravaganza .

Hi Joost! J, as in Nijmegen has a different sound. It's almost like an "hei".

That's why I said J as in You. J as in Nijmegen is different because of the IJ. That's pronounced differently. Nobody said Dutch was easy

Re: How rude, I've been brought up better than this

Thanks Guys and Girl(s?), I am having the time of my life (well, on the net that is) over here.

It is just taking a bit too much of my bedrest at night, but I'll live. It's for a good cause, my Alfa-entertainment namely.

Eventually, yes. But not all lessons.
In 96 I went to study for 3 months in Nijmegen. That was when I felt in love with the Netherlands. And love it every since as my home. I'm considering to move... I'm just waiting for the best time and a good chance.
