LOL, we call the inhabitants of the Netherlands most often "Holländer" though we should call them "Niederländer". Nord- und Süd-Holland are comparable to a federal state as South Dakota or Hessen.

As to the Neanderthals, that is 45 minutes by car. LOl. There is some DNA left in us though the last of them vanished about 30.000 years ago. It is a nice valley near Düsseldorf where the remains once were found and there flows the creek Düssel. You almost do not notice that you are close two the state city of Nordrhein-Westfalen with about 650.000 people.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.
