    • Looking for info on bright red tube lighting in windows of Amsterdam Red Light District

      Amsterdam Jul 20, 2014 at 3:49 AM

      I am trying to find similar lights to the ones used in the Amsterdam Red Light District. All I can find here in the States are red fluorescent light covers, which end up dimming the light, or already dim low watt red fluorescents. I would appreciate any info of specs/brand/watt/links of the bright red tube lighting used in the windows of the Red Light.
      Thank you.

      Is it possible to travel byTaxis easily around Assen/TT circuit area

      Assen Yesterday

      This follows from a previous question, which I've had help with, thanks to this great forum. My son and a friend are travelling to Assen to see the British Superbikes racing in September. Probably looking at hotel or B&B to stay in but I just want a bit of info re getting taxis in and around Assen. The main hotels are too expensive but others may be further away from either the circuit or assen itself. A forum member has told us about the shuttle bus that will be running from Assen to the circuit but is it feasible to get taxis quite easily, either to the circuit or to Assen? Without it costing too much as well, I hope.

      They are flying into Groningen and will go from there to whichever place they are going to stay in, possibly via Assen, depending on where they end up staying.

      Any help will be very much appreciated.

      Hi! I'm an international student at Groningen university who is really interested in outdoor activities. Back in English I went to Scouts for many years and even became a leader. I miss all the activities and fun we used to have, so I was wondering if there is a similar thing here for international students. Unfortunately my Dutch is not good enough to join a Dutch speaking group, so really the association would need to speak English. I am trying really hard to improve my Dutch though. So basically what I am looking for is an English speaking outdoors activity group, if anyone can help me I would be very appreciative. Thanks!

      Uithuizermeeden Oct 27, 2013 at 1:03 PM

      I have visited Uithuizen and Uithuizermeeden several times, having had friends who lived in the area. The entire area is most beautiful, and if I could live in Holland (which is on my Bucket List), it would have to be Uithuizen or Uithuizermeeden. One of the places I visited was a small WWII museum, but I can't remember which town it was in. I remember it was in a very beautiful neighbourhood, with tree-lined streets, and immaculate houses, and the museum itself was nearly tree-covered. The museum had a mannequin of a Canadian soldier, whose uniform was that of a Royal Canadian Corps of Signals soldier. Can you tell me whether it is in "jou dorp of in Uithuizen".
