So I know every city I go to, I say is my favorite. But I can say for serious, that Amsterdam is by far the coolest. Apart for the obvious reasons. I'm pretty sure the word hipster was invented here. I absolutely love it.
Let me paint the picture. It's 3:08 am. We just returned home from the pub crawl. A pub crawl consists of 30 minutes of free shots, and then six free drinks from each pub along the journey. There were hundreds of people. Epic is all that can be said. I have too many pictures and a tee-shirt.
And typing is a little difficult.
I bought a Kendama today. For anyone from Service High School, you know what's up. Well, I took it out tonight. I was the coolest shit in town. A security guard asked to play it. Everyone was very impressed with my motor skills, and everyone wanted a turn. Best way to meet strangers in and around the Red Light.
If you don't know what I'm talking about I suggest you youtube right now. And don't judge. Everyone thought I was stupid as shit for buying it, but once they played they were hooked. No lies.
Today we walked around, ate and toured some local flea markets. Riding bikes it a favorite pastime here, and they are more dangerous than motor vehicles. They are everywhere.
Dutch is a very cool language, similar to German but to my English ears it flows nicer. We have another day and night here tomorrow, and we'll be heading out into the countryside for a bit. Then onto Brussels and Paris. I'll probably write more tomorrow. But let it be known that Amsterdam is insane.
