The game’s rules

In the Netherlands a popular marble game (KNIKKEREN) is played by two or more players. To start the game, a throwing line is drawn on the ground using chalk or a stick some feet from the pit. Then the players try to roll their marbles into the pit. A player can try to hit a marble of an opponent in order to increase the gap between the marble and the pit. Winner is the first player with all marbles in the pit. He or she wins all marbles used in the game.

Name your cow!

Farmers usually give names to their cows. Dairy cows give an average of 7875 liters of milk per year. Cows with a name give an average of 280 liters of milk more than cows without a name. That’s at least 4 percent more.

A Gateway to Europe

Rotterdam is the second-largest city in the Netherlands and one of the largest ports in the world. Starting as a dam constructed in 1270 on the Rotte River, Rotterdam has grown into a major international commercial center. Its strategic location at the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta on the North Sea and at the heart of a massive rail, road, air and inland waterway distribution system extending throughout Europe is the reason that Rotterdam is often called the ``Gateway to Europe``.
