So I’ve finally got my bearings in this city and it’s already time to go. For any people coming to Amsterdam you look way edgier if you refer to it as “A’Dam” in emails. The transit system here would take Translink in Vancouver, pick it up by the ears and give it a sound thrashing. There are more bike paths then there are sidewalks…which leads to some tension from the cyclists regarding my wingspan.
Of late I’ve had some serious issues uploading images onto this blog or even Facecrack. I think I’ll have to dumb down the size of the files to make it more friendly to the numerous speeds of internet connections I’ve run into.
Yesterday I went to a Couchsurfing organized soccer games and met an amazing Italian named Federico. I told him I was traveling to Pisa and Viareggio. He asked how long I would stay and I said “for a tournament for 3 days”. He promptly responded with “Fack you, you need to stay at least 10 in Italy. You insult me.”
Anyhow, off to downtown for my last day of frivolity. I’ll be checking out the Van Gogh Museum and also the Redlight District. Fitting way to end my time here.
Off to Germany !
