The P in Dutch sounds similar to the B but there is a small difference.
If there is one thing you should get used to when you life in the Netherlands is ‘plannen’ (to plan). Spontanously visiting friends might be causing trouble because they already have plans for the day. They will tell you that you are very welcome to visit them, but then in a few weeks when they have a free spot in their agenda. All appointments with organisations and companies, like doctor, government or mechinacals should be made in advance.
Are you already used to plan everything?
