Surprisingly, I don’t have much to say about Amsterdam, other than it was BEAUTIFUL! I stayed in Amsterdam for five nights, most of which were rainy.
I hitchhiked from Prague to Amsterdam on October 11th in one day, I arrived to my friend’s place in Amsterdam at around 10:30 p.m. after a series of interesting/crappy rides (p.s. I will NEVER ride with an Eastern European truck driver again!) I will tell the stories later, I even have a bit of video to post when I get a better connection!
My first night in Amsterdam, I arrived to an apartment full of drunk, rowdy guys, gearing up for a goodbye party to one of the guys that stayed at the hostel in Bratislava. a few tequila shots, and lots of BSing later, I was riding sideways on the back of my friend’s bike, on our way to another party, which was being held in old “nunery.”
By the time we were headed out, I had what I like to call the “Tequila giggles.” I could not for the life of me, get on the back of the bike, and insisted I was sober enough to ride the bike myself…I really wasn’t though. We finally arrived back to the original apartment, and for the next four days, it rained.
I did the normal things you do while in Amsterdam, see the historical sites, architecture, and the Red Light District, of course! I also decided to try a “space cake.” When in Rome, do as the Romans do, right?
