Dutch Meme

One of the expat blogs I read (A Touch of Dutch) created this Netherlands-themed meme. It sounded like fun, so I thought I'd give it a try. To make your own, you just answer each of these twelve questions, type your answer into flickr search and choose a photo from the first page of search results. The original post suggested using this mosaic maker but I couldn't get it to work. It just returned a blank image for me. But anyway, here the questions, along with my answers:

1. A favorite Dutch landmark: schaapjes [sheep]
2. A favorite Dutch food: vlaamse frites [french fries]
3. A favorite Dutch phrase: "Doi" ["bye!" --okay, not really a phrase, but it's fun to say!]
4. A favorite Dutch celebrity: Queen Beatrix
5. A favorite Dutch candy or cookie: soesjes [chocolate covered profiteroles]
6. A favorite Dutch musician: Anouk
7. One favorite thing seen on the Dutch roadside: Koeien [cows].
8. When you think of all things Dutch, this is one thought which first comes to mind: fietsen [bikes]
9. One least favorite thing about the Netherlands: regen [rain]
10. Something Dutch you send home to family & friends: stroopwafeln [...um... stroop wafels!]
11. Favorite Dutch holiday [whether you celebrate it or not]: Sinterklaas
12. Favorite season of the year in the Netherlands: Zomer [summer]
