Orange.com's Etiquette Section is a smart piece of extended brand content describing, in a concise way, the subtle differences between us. My favourite? The Dutch are aptly described, thusly, "...they tend to avoid superlatives and use understatement frequently: to describe something as okay - is to say it’s quite good. The Dutch are remarkably straightforward in their dealings with others and they’re used to direct speaking, even though this can seem a little abrupt to outsiders. Their humour is subtle, and they don’t easily take offence. "
Which has, for what it's worth, been my experience with the Dutch.
Also, check out their "World Calendar of Events". Of course, Orange's "World" is limited to the range of their phones.
