Location, Weather & Sports

We thouhgt that you might find it interesting to know that the Netherlands is located on the same line of latitude as Alberta, Canada. Thus it is further north than most people realize. The weather is cool most of the time. We are having mostly 65 degree weather and it rains most days for a little while. We are writing this at 10 pm and it is as light as dusk. One night I awoke and looked out the window at 3:30 am and it looked just about as light. It is beautiful and green here. The country is about 1/3 the size of Utah. The Dutch soccer team (Holland) has won its first two games in the Eurocup and play again next week. It is a VERY BIG thing here. There is orange every where (the color of the national team).
