Time to finish off this TIG world trek with our final four countries!



NETHERLANDS

SPAIN



Netherlands - I've visited Amsterdam twice and loved the museums, canals, street markets, and the coffee shops were pretty cool too Cool
The shared home of this:




Canada - Crossed the border and visited Vancouver for a few days when I stayed in Seattle. Superb scenery. The home of Kenner Canada and its cool bilingual moc and boxes cheers



Mexico - Have never visited here. But I like Mexican food! And of course the home of this:

Anyway, I gotta give props to some fantastic Canadian heritage:

Crown Royal rye whiskey


Kokanee beer


Beautiful northern scenery - eg. Lake Louise Alberta


IMAX - a Canadian invention


Hockey! Twisted Evil

I've totally missed this thread but not too late with the final four.

The Netherlands gave us the non-flying Dutchman, the one and only Denis Bergkamp, Marc Overmars and of course RVP.
Also some great beers

The Spanish gave us Fabregas and then replaced him with Arteta. They could have kept Almunia.

Mexico gave us one of the best World Cups in 1986, which in turn gave birth to the 'Mexican Wave'.
Special mention for their food.

Canada gave us Degrassi Junior High...........................sorry.
