Yes that is true, we do have a quite steep evolution curve here in the Netherlands. That's also why we have to feed our children loads of cheese and let them drink a lot of milk. And very important we also give them extra growth hormones, it is only to keep them save, we have to...Welcome, Robin.
>> I am 1.87 meters....
I have a few friends from the Netherlands. None of them is less than 1.8 meters. I, on the other hand, am from Asia, where 1.7 meters is considered tall. Once I asked a Dutch co-worker, "Are all Dutch people as tall as you are?" "Yes," he replied, "all the short ones drowned years ago."
Unfortunately - or fortunately, I haven't figured that out yet - none of my Dutch friends plays accordion.
>> there is a bit more peace in my life....
No peace here, my friend. You already see the battle between the Rolls-Royce/Ferrari owners and the Ford Pinto owners.
I'm a Toyota owner, but have to side with the Rolls-Royce/Ferrari owners on the issue of the Hohner Student 40. You will quickly outgrow its keyboard with only 2 octaves, besides other limitations.
I wait for the moment that I outgrow the Honer Student.. but at the moment I'm a real beginner.
