    The biggest difference in the culture I can say between Romania and The Netherlands is the food. And actually it was quite a big issue, I can say for us. We are not used to eat fried things and all kind of fast food, and so on. But on the other hand I cannot say nothing about the haring. Maybe it is curious, but for me it’s the best thing I have ever eaten here in Th Netherlands. My name is Marius Bariz. I am working for Royal IHC. And my function is Lead Mechanical Engineer.
