What's happening? When I first moved to The Netherlands over 10yrs ago it took me a long to get used to how safe it
In The States, I can barely watch the news, they often use scare tactics to get viewers or get people hooked waiting for the next update. And it often seems like endless negative report after another. Maybe that's what's happening here. Maybe the crime was there all along and the media just never focused on it. But now they are, and the scare tactics are working. It makes me question the safety of Eindhoven, makes me wonder if it's still the right place for us. Everywhere has its pluses and minuses, I guess I'm just surprised as to what is happening here, somewhere I didn't expect. I try and tell myself no matter where you go in the world there is crime, just some places worse than others. I enjoyed living with little concern about crime around us, but I guess that was naïve anyway.
Sorry for the depressing post, and I promise I will get around to happy fun posts about our vacation to Florida.
Bye! Dag! Adios! Namaste!
