Really? So, if i tell you I have a mexicaanse roodknie, you know what species I am talking about? Because that is the common name for this species in MY country.
Before 'mexicaanse roodknie' there's a 'De', by chance? :kiss:

I love the double letters you Dutch use, like Haarlem.

Cracks me up because I imagine a Carlito's Way kind of scene with Luis Guzmàn talking with a retired soul musician in Harlem. Uh, not so weird since that city name was New Amsterdam :pompous:

Yes, there can be a 'De' before it, lol! Didn't want to confuse the guy too much. :rofl:
Yes New York was New Amsterdam, but the English just had to have it:shifty: :D
Not that Amsterdam is such a beautiful city anymore, just a tourist trap with lots of coffeeshops and a big red light district. I prefer Utrecht, much nicer and more authentic Dutch architecture and history :)

If you want to be taken seriously, better start using scientific names. Common names are made up by petstores to impress new customers.
Oh I know I know! Can i tell him?

But it's too easy :)

'mexicaanse' <-- btw how much lovely are double letters? is 'mexican'?

'rood' I think is 'red' and 'knie' is 'knee'?

See? I know nothing of Dutch language but I can pinpoint as well u_u
