My daughter met her husband in Amsterdam and also used to live there. My Great Grandparents immigrated from Holland. They had a dairy with a pub on top of the barn. Their last name was Stam. I love having friends like you and Shelly over there! I've never been there, but it always feels like it should be home to me. I love the sea, boats and raw shrimp. May be genetic or just down right strange?
