beautiful dreams, brave little dog...

There are 750,000 people in Amsterdam and 500,000 bikes This is hard to imagine until you get there... I was loving it!

I loved how when there would be two people riding a bike, the person on the back would jump off whenever they would come to a bridge so the person pedaling could get over it. Then they would jump back on and keep going (there is an infinite potential for laughter as individuals do not always jump back on successfully...) So when in Amsterdam, find a corner café facing a bridge, such as East of Eden (Linnaeusstraat 11), order an Amstel beer and enjoy...

"May your glass be ever full. May the roof over your head be always strong. And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead"
