I am famished so I will make this short. I would like to thank you all for your kind words. your replies are what brought me to sign up to Channels in the first place. If my memory is correct and one can very well imagine the sorry state of this particular function after such a week-end. You are the...

Dazzler, indeed I am from the other side of the river Rhine. Please bear with my deficient english. If you really insist upon it, I can post the whole thing in my mother tongue. It would be a tad difficult for you to read. BTW I am truly sorry for the rugby, england should have kicked our arse. For ...

full fledged crawl.

I was reading the channel forum recently and found out a comment that I particularly liked: pot adds to the Amsterdam experience but is not by itself the experience. I thought that this was really my take on the whole matter. Of course having said this, my tale is really going to sound like all I di...

Great trip report

World Citizen, When you get in the motion your style goes from simple reporting to downright poetic...Great report in al aspects. I love the way you described that roof being transformed from plain brown tiles to fish scales, made me want to see this for myself. Funny how a little freedom changes ou...

How I got introduced to skuff

In fact I was in the Dam twice after my last report. Not much to tell but this which I thought was really amazing. As I told everyone in my first and only trip report so far, I discovered somewhat late for my taste the Basjoe coffeshop. Previous to that trip I had absolutely no idea what I was missi...

I htink I have a good tale for y'all... or how I got introduced to skuff - 20 y...

Thanks Avery great read. it explains it all. In the end the whole thing is treated as a business and people got in for the money. I am sure you can still find some people that are genuinely interested in the plant. I hope we do not end up with already packaged and marketed commercial marijuana. We a...

thank Bo. Why 2012 do have a change of legislation ? if so as i think the US will be under the rule of the Republican which have always been very tolerant toward big money not pot and certainly not pot smokers. What a travesty the whole thing is. my point is I hope California opens the show with a b...

You better miss it because soon enough the fantasy land that we somehow love will be reverted back to a complete illegal status except for Dutch Citizen. Ooops no more baking... well we will have to come to California after you have finally voted yes.

Ok I hear and read the same basic idea on the new Dutch cabinet intending to ban access to tourist. Fine a grand idea from an extreme right populist cabinet that has not been thought over. Lets imagine that we start by completely stop the coffee shop business which in reality is the intent of this n...

As far as being a pothead it beats a lot of place that I know. My home country is certainly a lot lot worse in that respect. Having say this Holland from its protestant background is a lot more tolerant that most countries in Western Europe that I have lived in. Althought I realize at the moment the...

Amsterdam mini one day crawl.

Oh well after reading so many good trip reports, I feel the need to spin my tale. Amsterdam is the folly of my youth if not my life. I got acquainted with the Dam 20 years this coming month. So much has changed in the course of such a long time span. I guess what does change more than anything else ...
