We are back! Good times were had! Eindhoven CS scene is vastly underrated!

I've been awake for nearly 2 days now so must sign off for now.

I look forward to your trip report theguest. I flew yesterday with Ryanair to Hamburg Lübeck. Just cost 8 pounds return cos my old man didn't have a visa electron, otherwise it would of cost 1 penny each way. I had a brilliant time in Lübeck, drunk loads of Glühwein with shots of Rum in it, very cold and nice buildings. Alas, I don't really think it warrants a trip report so I won't bother doing one. I think I may now start making plans to live in Germany, bloody excellent place and being in close proximity to Holland, I'm pretty sure that good weed can be bought.

OK guys, here it is:

Hey Shezz, I thought the same thing about Germany. If someone wants to move to NL for the weed, why not simply live in a neighboring country seeing as you can just do a border run anyway.

So why was The Pink coffeeshop Eindhoven closed ?
Being raided and found with 114 kilo's of weed and hash just might have something to do with it. . . . .

The article below explains . .


''Friday saw the police in a raid in the Eindhoven coffeeshop Pink 250 pounds pot and hashish, worth 1.8 million euros. Hostage calls it “an unprecedented stock� that he can not but come from a large criminal organization. He intends to implement the most famous coffeeshop in Eindhoven as a penalty to close for 1 year.

The region of Eindhoven has sixteen coffee shops at 700 thousand inhabitants. Far too little, find Mayor Rob van Gijzel.

Mayor Rob van Gijzel of Eindhoven does not want coffee shops close, as his colleagues in Roosendaal and Bergen op Zoom recently announced. He just wants more coffee shops open in the fifth city in the Netherlands and surrounding municipalities. But they must be much smaller than the current shops.

“The volume of coffee shops should be substantially smaller,� according to the PvdA mayor. ‘Now, coffee shops mega convert. There is a lot of money, millions. That attracts the back door, in purchasing, a lot of crime. �

''Eindhoven currently has fifteen coffee shops and a Pietermaritzburg. There are far too low for a region with 700 thousand inhabitants. “Amsterdam has 800 thousand inhabitants and 300 coffee shops’, as he made the comparison. Gijzel with his colleagues in south-Brabant consider whether more and smaller coffee shops can be opened.

Because the tolerance is designed for small coffee shops and not for the current coffee shops with mega million turnover. ‘That is no more retail, “says Van Gijzel. Precisely which attracts large-scale crime, he believes. He finds a turnover of 150,000e - 200,000e per coffeeshop appropriate. '

Rob van Hostage? Sounds like the victim of a 'Securicor' heist!

His name is Rob van Gijzel, Babelfish has translated his name...a gijzelaar is a hostage in Dutch. This is why I reckon if anybody translates a page using that crappy babelfish, they at least check first that it makes sense before they post it. Reading this post makes little sense to me.

For instance there were 250 KILOS of hash and weed found, and it has been closed for ONE year, not four.

And the one and a half to two tons is referring to 150.000 to two hundred thousand euro turnover. A ton in Dutch means 100,000 euros, also near the end, kilos is translated to pounds again which isn't correct.
