    Default Good to be an Amsterdammer

    In all the turmoil of people fighting each other for futile things, it's good to be an 'Amsterdammer' (let it be). By the way, it's hard to understand the Italian tenor (Joseph Calleja) singing the old Dutch song 'Aan de Amserdamse Grachten' ('On the Amsterdam's Canals'). But at least he tries.

    I guess you're talking about the time just after the Second World War. Yes, there were farms in the outskirts of Amsterdam. They're still there.
    But maybe your father stayed in the north of Holland (somewhere in Friesland or Groningen), which is less urbanized, and where the cows still graze in the open land.
