DE KEUKEN VAN 1870, part 1 I'd guess that the Dutch sense of understatement leads this incredible eatery to have such a miniscule sign. I walked in and asked where they would like me, and they seated me at a long table next to a young Dutch couple. I already knew pretty much what I wanted, and attem...

It was mostly about the food

DE BAKKERSWINKEL I went in one morning for a hot breakfast, but the uitsmijter wasn't on the menu, so I decided to try the quiche van de dag, bleu cheese. I cringed a little when it came; it was about the size of my fist. A moment later, I caught the server's attention and and pushed the empty plate...

The German Tourist Story thread

I roll out of bed just a bit dazed, throw on my orange jacket and foam clogs (black plaid flannel pants, most likely), and stumble down to the restaurant for some coffee (no room service in Pff Echmond). I grab the biggest cup of the strongest stuff and head back to my room when I get accosted by th...

Priapos in Amsterdam

The trip went smoothly, even my checked bag. Schiphol had a pile of passport checking backing up the works, so I didn't wait long at the carousel. Speaking of carousels, I may ride the ferris wheel, today. My initial waking day went well. I appreciate my foresight in packing the mini-speakers and bu...

I don't think I actually brought it up, but I don't feel sure that I didn't lead the conversation that way. I guess if they mention that they live in a messed-up place, I should just ignore it or say "That sucks. Hope it gets better." Makes sense, especially considering the evidence. More ...

Weird incident

The stars may have been aligned against me this night. Here's part of the preface to the above story. I was in the hotel bar, having a conversation with an Irish fellow. I was stoned and pretty drunk, and I suspect he was as well. I mentioned that the only Irish person I had really talked to about t...

A Social Problem

I went out looking for Grey Area, and sort of stumbled onto it just before noon. The door was closed, but the window was open, and I could see two people inside. I look in. "We'll open up in just a minute." I sit on the ledge and look around. I spent a lot of time just looking around. Ever...

A difficult time I helped create

I took a while to post this story. I needed to think it through. It happened right after my difficult and confusing encounters with the drunk Englishmen and Irishmen. I drank too many snakebites and staggered down Warmoesstraat late my third night. Looking into Durty Nelly's, I decided to go in, che...

People in Amsterdam mostly mellow out a lot (for an exception, see Politics forum, Violent People thread). People frequently bristle at any mention of violence.

Tourist points

If you observe subroutine 105, and tone it way down, then you may get a glimpse behind the curtain. I went into one shawarma shop late at night on my 5th (?) night in order to buy a can of tea. I needed to cool off from the fierce red pepper which I had liberally shaken onto my pizza slice. I didn't...

I had the best flight back ever. I arrived at Schipol early, thinking I'd have time to shop. Everything took a looooong time, so I only got to my plane a little early with no duty-free smokes. Oh well. A pretty girl sat next to me on the plane. We said hello, then I ignored her for about half an hou...
