It was fun SD. Hope to see you again in our favorite town.

The Old Style now calls itself a "smoking cafe" or something like that. The pirate is still outside, but they ripped the heart out of the place.

Easy Internet near Rembrandtplein has blocked weed websites for years. Fortunately, they have never blocked Channels. I wrote a thread on this years ago, along the lines of "what the fuck?

You're welcome, small:) Maybe it was SE rolling with dark hash? I stick to the light marocs, usually. But I did twist up a few darker ones with stuff like the 420 Skuff from de Kuil's. I used to be a weed-only man while in Amsterdam, but some extended stays in Christiania switched me over to the li...

Hey Viking, It was fun meeting you and hearing that you need to toke. I don't think SE was that annoyed with you. It was a lot of fun. Remember I bought the extra gear even though I was headed out to Schiphol? It wasn't wasted. As for Mila and the Pollinator, SB, I think enough has been said. Hint. ...

Otis, perhaps you can achieve some kind of therapy by posting here on the differences in the life you lead now and the time you spent in the Netherlands. We certainly enjoy reading your reports, so you do us a favor as well.

Take a look at http://www.coffeeshop.freeuk.com/ACDfrmGu.html for more info. Don't hold me to the exact price on the Thai, but it was definitely in that range. And it was fresh! Have fun. I'd like to hear some other experiences with their gear.

Trip Report

Like most of my trips, this one was fairly short, 3 nights, so I try to pack in a lot. I went to almost all of my usual coffeeshops, and I got to visit two new shops this time, both very good. I recommend Het Ballonnetje for a late morning, early afternoon visit. It’s over in the east, a neighborhoo...

Good trip reports, Stem. I remember watching some American sports event with Wolf Dangler at the Globe a number of years ago.

Re: D.F.A. Day 2. Meetings Galore.

Walking back from Noon I saw one of those really small cars, not a Swatch car, something called a “Canta”, I think, riding in the bike path and wondered if that was allowed. It was actually pretty amazing that it fit. [/quote] I know what you are talking about. They are half the size of a Smart Car....

Great final report. As always, I enjoyed hanging with you. Sorry about Niki.

When I hear these stories about American customs hassles, I get pretty mad. Isn't there anything we can do about this, without putting ourselves in jeopardy?
