curing the 7-10 splits of the world, one pirouette at a time
What other regions make up the Netherlands? Don't worry, I don't know either (w/o wikipedia-ing it) and neither does anyone else who lives in the US. There's your answer.
Hmmm.Maybe for the same reason US citizens use "the US" and "America" interchangeably, even though the US doesn't make up the whole of America.:D
Nah. I asked them the story when I was in Amsterdam last fall. According to the Dutch, Holland is simply the equivalent of a "state" in the United States. It's like calling the United States California because that's the only state anybody cares about. ;-)
