One of the many benefits of dating Marinus is the first hand experiences in Dutch culture, for example.
Long before I learnt it in my Dutch lessons, for example, I already knew that lunch is bread with cheese (2 slices bread, one slice cheese, nothing else) and the main meal is served for dinner.
One lesson was that during this time of year Sinterklaas and his various Piet helpers are around and may or my not leave something in your shoe.
Today Marinus came over for dinner, and would you believe it? Seems like Piet visited too, because he left me a sweet present in my shoe!
Be kind. Stay safe.
