Netherlands is filled with people living on a geographically tine piece of land. While in Finland the amount of people per square km is 16, in the Netherlands the number is a staggering 404. So you really need to learn to live (and love?) your neighbors. 

While in Finland you barely know them, here you are more or less expected to participate to parties, weddings and funerals of your neighbors  While planning our wedding, on our guest list is "buren", because we are not sure of all of their names. 

Yesterday we got a brochure via mail of an instance, that helps settling disputes between the neighbors. Based on a reality program Bonje met de buren, I think this would be on the top of my most-hated-jobs. Phew.. Well, somebody's gotta do it I guess.
