Quick update from Christiania

Postby viking » Sat Sep 10, 9:24 am

Greetings from Christiania!
Here again visting friends before heading down
to Amsterdam tomorrow for the final two weeks of
my holiday.

This year the police presence in Christiania is worse than ever.
Police in riot gear are constantly walking through in small packs.
As I first walked in earlier this week, the police were dragging
away two men. As I got inside I passed more police milling around.
Still, three different guys all offered to sell me hash as I walked to
my friend's private sports club. I politely declined as I get mine
there from people I know.

There is a Danish law now that makes it illegal for people to
alert others by yelling, "Police!", so the residents of Christiania
yell, "Ost!" (cheese), instead. There's a story about why that word
was chosen, but I've forgotten most of it since I was smoking some
of Christiania's finest when it was told to me:)

Speaking of which, the light maroc hash here is still as excellent as ever.
With a color a bit darker than milk chocolate, and a perfect pliable
consistency that needs no heating to make for easy breakup. The
fragrance is that of flowers, simple wonderful. The taste is also
wonderful, easy on your throat and smooth in and out.

I haven't smoked fine hash since April, and the first hits off a classic
Christiania-style j from a friend were heavenly. The tobacco had
been toasted well, and the j was nice and heavily tilted toward the
hash side. The smoke was smooth as silk, and a pleasure to hold
in for a bit.

Only took a few hits and I was in the zone, just so happy to be back
in Christiania hanging with my friends. The sports club where I hang
out is "members only", and the door's kept shut most of the time to
keep the police from wandering in. Last September I was sitting at
the club's bar with 8 j's pre-rolled beside me and I turned to my right
and there was a policeman in riot gear standing next to me. WTF!
Placing my hat over the j's and turning my back toward him, I
just ignored him hoping for the best. One of the members told the two cops that it was a private club and they'd have to leave and they did.

The police also decided to evict a traveling circus from Christiania this week, because they didn't have residence papers and had been living in
their trailers. That did not go over well. Some residents of Christiania
had a peaceful sit-in and were hauled away by the dozens.
And the people, not just in Christiania, are wondering why the police
are sending so many officers to roam around Christiania every day
instead of having them patrol areas in the city that actually need
police enforcement.

Even with all the police, Christiania is as smokey as ever. Whether
hanging out at the Månefiskeren (Moonfisher) coffeeshop or at the
sports club, people are all are smoking joints made the same way, toasted
tobacco mixed with top-notch maroc, in cones with long, thin filters.
Their similarity can come in handy sometimes as when you pass
your freshly lit joint to a friend who passes it along and you don't
get it back until it's almost finished. But in the meanwhile, several
other joints have passed through your hands on their ways around,
and they were all as good as yours:)

Well, time to get out and about. Have had a solid week of mild temps
and sunny skies, and it's more of the same today!

Be back in the Dam tomorrow night! Sad to leave here, but happy to
go there.

So glad to hear you are having a good time. I will see you in just 11 short days for our trip to Haarlem.

Mrs. SD is really looking forward to her Prune Looza.

Safe travels my friend, safe travels.

I had a dream about Denmark a couple of nights ago. Kind of a scary dream about hoodlums under bridges and mamasans in inns. What do you mean by a "Christiania style joint"?

I already have it:)

Have had a great time here in Denmark.
Leaving for Amsterdam by plane this afternoon.
Just checked out of hotel and am headed to train station to
stow luggage, then it's off to Christiania for more smoking until
I have to get to the airport.

Have had a wonderful time here again, despite the police parades.
You just have to ignore them and walk right on by. There are lookouts
everywhere who start yelling "Ost!" before the police get too near, and
when you hear it, you just have to put your gear out of sight until they
pass.

Looking forward to getting back to the Dam tonight, but I know I will
not find any hash there that I like better than what I get here.
I'll just have to make do:)

Viking my friend. I’m sorry I could not join you for a smoke session either in Christiania or Amsterdam this time, but it seems you’re doing just fine by yourself. I can just imagine you hanging out on your balcony in Amsterdam smoking it up – high as a kite…. I’m on my way to Africa in two weeks time (Senegal, Burkina Faso & Benin) and will of course have my obligatory stopover in Mokkum. You know….work….he he….

I’ve heard they have excellent weed in West Africa?

OK my friend, take care and tell me what is hot at the moment regarding nice hashes on the Amsterdam scene.

Hey Viking,

Does toasting the tobacca lessen some of the effects of nicotine? How does it affect the taste of a hash/marijuana J.

Thanks,

DOOFUS

P.S. Amsterdam rules!

Doofus, toasting really helps the tobacco burn even better and makes it
easier to mix and fill with with. I'm not sure if much, if any, nicotine
gets removed by toasting.

Christiania rules, indeed.
