For those who aren't aware of this yet, but there is the 'Fabric Depot' on SE 122nd and Stark in Portland where one can find some Dutch and Indonesian things. For instance: speculaas koekjes, dropjes, stroopwafels, sambals, kecaps and more. And around Christmas time there are plenty of TaaiTaai poppen among other things. They used to sell amandelbrood too but I haven't seen those in awhile. Jammer. I love them! So much for this tidbit.

Hello Dutch Friends!
My family recently moved back to Portland from Holland after 6 years there. Our 2 boys were born in the Netherlands and our oldest, Coen (3 1/2) spoke dutch in school.

Post career, relocated to Bend.
On the first Saturday of the month, our Dutch Club here in Bend get together for coffee. Are there similar events in…Continue

Legislation has been changed. The moment you got AOW used to be the month you aged 65. Steps wise this is changing into 67 towards the year 2017. Depending on yourmore precise birthday: for 2016 you have to add 6 - 9 months to your birthday !
I wanted to start a blog on receiving AOW while you live in the US and you lived some years after your 15th Birthday in the Netherlands. I am about to turn 65 myself and so it might be interesting to see what an Expat qualifies for.…Continue
