Was in Amsterdam, NL, a few years ago for a friend’s birthday. While deleting old e-mails came across a link to this great overview of Amsterdam:

How not to get hit by a bike.

The sad part is that there are people who literally avoid Amsterdam because they’re not interested in dope, hookers or tulips. A friend of mine was once touring Europe with some of his art school pals, but chose not to join them on their side-trip to Amsterdam. “Nah I’m not into that stuff,” he figured. So he missed the Vermeers and the cool buildings and the open-air caf├ęs and street music and canals and bridges and the basic bliss of aimless wandering.

Myself and some friends ended up staying at Pieter’s Apartment that we rented from Wimmo & Godwin who run this B&B.
