Meet Pim de Koel
Greetings! My name is Pim de Koel. I was born in a little country called Holland on "Queen's Day." No doubt you have been following the recent ascension of Willem-Alexander: Our new King!
So tell me, what do you know about Holland? Windmills? Canals? Picturesque little townhouses and streets lined with cheese? Or maybe you think of Rembrandt, Vincent Van Gogh, or other masters of the Golden Age?
Yes, yes, that's certainly one Holland... but let me show you another. Many of the things you Americans appreciate and enjoy - artisanal foods, green energy, cutting edge art and design, an open and progressive culture - are in fact Dutch, and have been for a very long time! What you call cool, we call tradition. You might say Holland is the Original Cool!
Come see more of what I have to show you by following me as I bike the streets of Holland, boat in the canals and churn the world-famous Dutch cheese and get to know what cool really is.
