Just a quick note for today: it's really sad that so many "expat" web sites out there are little more than link farms or real estate scams. It can be very hard to get good information and I'll be doing my best to steer you in the right direction. Already there's at least one well-known expat Web site which is now little more than ads with just hints of content here and there.
Keep reading and I'll make sure you get real information, not spam.
Meanwhile, I think I'll be heading to the hospital with my wife and maybe see where our baby will be born. Being born in Amsterdam to French and American parents might give her a rather interesting legal status. I'll write more about that later. It's not always straightforward.
