During my early morning ritual of coffee and internet news, of which the Denver Post Cannabis section is a part of the ritual, I almost choked on my coffee reading the aka "Beware of Amsterdam Pot Tourists" fiction. Talk about altered perceptions! Methinks that writer must be in a separate...

It's starting to seem like that old saying.... "If you didn't have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all." The disconnectedness: You brought your work with you. An act of heresy while in Amsterdam. Stone her!!! Happened to me once many years ago, until I said "F" the work.....

Thanks for your reports..... I appreciate it. They make my US East Coast mornings fun, along with a coffee.

Hi Weldon.... We stayed at the Movenpick Hotel..... a somewhat new, very modern four star facility on the waterfront..... very nice hotel, but unfortunately, it is off away from the centrum in a sterile modern office building area about a 15 minute walk from central station. With the help of Docski,...

While it's disappointing not to be in CO to enjoy the events with other Channelites, it's a real pleasure to be there via your trip reports.

Much appreciated...

The last day. A walk to Brouwersgracht, one of the more scenic and pleasant canals. We ask an elderly gentleman to take our photo next to the canal on this mild sunny day. Time for a smoke, so we go to Barney’s Farm. The place is almost empty. We finish off the Laughing Buddha. It is so pleasant; ...

“We smell like marihuanaâ€￾, Red proclaimed as she got our coats out of the hotel closet in the morning. Apparently, all of the open air walking we do is not enough to purge the ubiquitous odor. The day started as cloudy and rainy. But mostly clear sunny skies appeared near noon. A perfect day for...

One noticeable change in the coffee shop scene in the six years since the last visit is the indoor air quality (IAQ, to use my engineering lingo). Cigarette smoking is no longer permitted in most coffee shops. Some tolerate it if you keep you cigaretten pack off the table. Most enforce the ciggy ban...

A satisfying, long nights’ sleep and that nasty cold is clearly on the way out. Energy, once again. We take the train to Haarlam to buy Ecco shoes and Thai sticks. The train ride is a nice interlude from the city. A look at the “countryâ€￾. We see small farms, some idyllic looking. The grass fie...

The original cat... the cat I remember, was a very large tabby named Max, who I first looked for. He was moody, but on good days, he would be affectionate. But this new fellow was certainly not Max, by his fur color. The new cat, like all cats, has adopted an arrogant attitude, thinking he owns the ...

The days are now starting to blend in together. Each passing day is starting to feel the same; the difference from day to day is slight, consisting of being in various parts of town and visiting different coffee shops. In the back of my mind lurks that terrible thought of departure day. I keep it re...

The first morning a few days ago waking up at the Movenpick hotel, the room coffee, I discovered much to my chagrin, was freeze dried. How can that be in the land of excellent coffee? Unwilling to spend 21 euro each for the hotel breakfast, I ran over to the Subway a few doors down the block two pic...

A pleasant morning with a few patches of blue. We are off on the tram on this pleasant morning. Change trams at central station. A Dutch woman with a grey faced chocolate lab enters the tram. The dog requires assistance getting up the steps, and the woman sits behind me, the hound (dog) sitting on t...

A day of sloth. We wake up at a very late 9:30 am. A fantastic view of AMS and all the maritime traffic from 18 stories high. The weather is awful today…. Rain, drizzle, no rain, torrential downpours, etc. etc. We feel so lazy, and still tired from the traveling. So we simply loaf in the room, oft...
