We seem to have the same taste in weed, BW, as I also like the sativas and the diesels. What's John's namesake? I mean I know what a namesake is lol but I've never seen it on the menu... does he not put it on there, and is it worth trying in November? Think he's referring to the john sinclair strai...

Thank you for the cool trip report, BW. I also liked the flavor of Chocolope, but it didn't do much for me in the buzz department. Way over-priced for what it is, IMO. Shoot, Tommy Chong didn't even smoke it lol he gave the huge joint of Chocolope that was given to him last year at the cup away. Ho...

Much can be said about what a hysterical and frightened citizenry will or won't do when given a chance to do what's right. WWII wasn't that long ago, but in this country you only have to go back 5-6 years to find how the majority of the country trusted a liar (Bush) for the sake of perceived safety....

Nice report many thanks - my sort of report (not all about coffee shop menus) - a couple of tips on places to eat which I will try - I was in Amsterdam in June but I am missing the place like mad already - next year seems a long way off. I shared your enjoyment of the Resistance Museum - just a sha...

Thanks for clearing that up Bo. I thought she was talking about circling Uranus.

You do have to be careful, look out for cars and other bikes. Amsterdammers aren't very fond of tourists on bikes, they're usually slow and riding on the wrong side of the street. I don't have a bell so I scream "Ring ring! Sorry!" when I want to pass and they always laugh at me. Bastards...

Dutch subtitles

Anne's mention of subtitles in another forum made me flash on a couple of memories: First trip - 1990 - Late night and a bunch of wasted US first-timers in a Hague hotel room, watching a Kurosawa film (Dodesukaden/Clickety-Clack). The subtitles didn't really help, but we had a great time trying to f...

Although there are probably many good ones I've not stayed at, I'll cast my vote for (yes) The Bulldog Hotel on OZ Voorburgwal. You can't smoke in the room, but they have a 24-hour lounge/bar for guests only. Reasonably priced, it's right on a canal, convenient to Centraal Station, the Dam and the R...

I took only about 30 pictures, if that, over 3 days. Neither did I go to an art museum. But all that time spent wandering somewhat aimlessly, eating/ drinking/ smoking al fresco and watching people was priceless.

Plans, what plans?

Another great report! Looking forward to my own Bulldog Hostel experience in early April. The private rooms would vary of course, but about the bathroom: Did your shower have a bench that folded down from the wall? One picture on the BDH site seem to show that. Thanks!

Are mushrooms any more or less subject to detection than herb? If I wanted to bring/send anything back, that's what it would be.

I brought some herb back following my first trip in 1990, but that was back in my don't-have-a-job-to-lose days.

Fred the Dentist

A brief reminiscence from my first trip in August 1990: After a few days in Amsterdam, the 4 of us went to the Hague for the second part of the trip. I was ostensibly there for the World Science Fiction Convention, a paying attendee armed with a second set of forged credentials in case anyone wished...
