The Dutch

And then suddenly opposite you in the subway there are three Dutch people sitting. Ratling about divorce. Purely theoretical discussion. High energy. High speed in their talking. It sounds like a quirky language when your observing it.

Many different thoughts passed through my head while listening to them:
– don't miss the language
– its a weird language
– Italian is beautiful compared to Dutch

At the same time your own culture is so close by and so far away. I almost felt they were intruding in my private space. Didn't ask them to be here. Almost felt as if I didn't want them to sit opposite me because it forced me to listen to their conversation. Funny.
