    Re: Inland

    IMO, an adverb.

    inland - definition of inland by Macmillan Dictionary (note "only before noun").

    inland - definition of inland by Macmillan Dictionary (right after a verb, as in your example).

    Balkenende, instead of sending your thanks in a separate message, just click the Like button, please.

    The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow internet connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    Thank you.
