    Default I want one!

    Hello there all!

    Glad that I may enjoy your forum!
    I'm living in Norway and you all ask: Why a forum so far away?
    In Norway there are not many forums. They use facebook for everything, and I don't have a facebook account and I don't want it.
    I'm from Nederland, but there are not much pick-ups, so no forum either.

    You all speak english and I have sometimes a good laugh when you use your 'Dutch'! In a repectfull way, but some of your words are funny to me. Bakkie is such a word.

    LOL - our "Dutch" and your Dutch do not agree with some definitions, like kombuis, which is a galley in proper Dutch and a kitchen in the South African version, and we often call your country Holland, even though it's only one of your provinces of your home country.

    BTW, a bakkie is a proper word, just like bakgat . Enjoy and welcome!

    There are quite a few words in Dutch that shouldn't be used directly in Afrikaans.

    "Cat" is one of them...........
