You are right about Amsterdam, of course. It doesn't even have a million
inhabitants. Why would anyone outside the Netherlands know about Amsterdam?
Most foreigners probably don't even know that The Netherlands and Holland
are just aliases for the same country.

> No tulip fields near Amsterdam even in 1886?

No, that won't help you... Amsterdam was a lot smaller at that time. They
annexed other towns and villages after that.

> Should I have said Rotterdam?

That would have been even worse... (But Rotterdam was at least mentioned once
in a Barks story, so "real" Barks fans should know it!)
