Interesting piece today in the New York Times (reg. req.) on Germans having themselves cremated in the Netherlands. Wait; I should be more precise lest I alarm you — the article is about Germans arranging to have themselves cremated later. If you want to have your corpse burnt, the Dutch will do it with a lot less red tape. Much cheaper too; what’s not to love? And, thanks to the EU, Germans with bodies, but not money, to burn may freely access the Dutch cremation market.
Now that’s what Europe is all about.
