Dealing with the Dutchies – October 27

Dealing with the Dutchies – Saturday, October 27

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear international students,

It was great to meet many of you on September 29 at the home of artist Henk Helmantel.

Now we are planning our October event, which will focus on Dutch culture and some international cultural differences. For many an eye-opener into things you have not understood so far in your life as a student in Groningen! If the Dutch are blunt, does that mean they don’t like me? When can I just drop in and when do I have to make an appointment? Get more insight into funny and awkward situations related to where people come from!

We will also be serving the typical Dutch stamppot, so come and try it! As usual we will have vegetarian food for those who don’t eat meat. And there will be some special Dutch sweets for dessert, as well as a few other goodies for you to taste.

Date – Saturday, October 27, 2018
