Title: The freest country in the world.

Digging deeper into culture: Subcultures: In the Netherlands there are a few subcultures. Prostitutes are a small part of the subculture because it is legal and not many people wish to do that for a job. The gay and lesbian are also a subculture because they are different from the majority but still do what they want. Culture landscape: The river and roads that go through the middle of Amsterdam are so amazing. It's such a crazy site that I would encourage anyone to go see.
