I am psychologist, married & mother of 3 boys (17, 20, 21). We lived in Hong Kong, Boston and London, but now love Amsterdam. It is a compact city (a bicycle is a must-have), yet very metropolitan, w. lots of cultural offerings. I am a lousy cook, but an avid literature reader and a sail-boat skipper, sailing regattas.
