Sometimes about the comic, sometimes not:
The Netherlands is not the land of the coffeeshops (I mean the ones like Starbucks for example, not the ones were you can get weed 😉 ). I always thought that was a shame every time i was abroad and set foot in some coffeeshop. I love the atmosphere in most of these shops. Always busy, people talking, working on their laptops, reading or even in meetings of some sort. There’s always something going on. The Netherlands is more a country of cafés (we call them old brown cafés). These are also nice to be in, but they cary a different atmosphere. No laptops in there, mostly people drinking a beer(, coffee) or eating (more like these American sportcafes, but mostly smaller and more traditional). No work being done there… except for networking maybe.

Anyway, I used to live near ‘downtown’ Maastricht (more of a village in the eye of Americans probably 🙂 ) which meant that I was in cafés a lot (I lived in a flat without a garden). Now I notice that coffeeshops are starting to become very popular here. I see them everywhere. Nevertheless, it’s too late; I moved away from downtown, so no coffeeshops near my home or near my work. Sigh.

Are you a cafe/ coffeeshop kind of person?



  1. When I was in college, I had a penpal in Maastricht! Hm, I can’t remember the name, though. I just remember the name of the gal I was writing to from Groningen. She was one of two penpals I wrote to for the longest time (the other was in Saint-Brieuc).

    • What a coincidence! Maastricht of all places! For American standards Maastricht is a small town, I may even know him/ her (but probably not 🙂 )
      Penpals, in these digital days the magic of waiting for letters is to be gone.

  2. That’s exactly the atmosphere I’d like to live in… A café atmosphere at home is really special… Too bad my wife decided other wise… And I didn’t complain.

    Well nice to see guest star appearance all along this comic… Francis? Are you OK, man?

  3. I would still be surprised if it’s usual in the Netherlands to strip naked and stand in the laundromat, waiting for the machines to return your clothes. 😉 Yes, I did catch that!

    • LOL. Never underestimate how strange Dutch (social) behaviour can be to the rest of the world.
      Actually, it wasn’t really intentional to be honest, setting up the scene I was a little careless and just grabbed a minifigure. Made me laugh afterwards (and I was a bit annoyed with myself 😉 )
