Off to Nether Netherland

Amsterdam, wow... this small, smokey, ultra relaxed town has certainly opened my eyes to a world that i only had heard about. I was greeted by the hostel receptionist at Hotel StayOkay after a 10 hour bus ride from Paris to the Netherlands, stoned, pupils wider than a 5 cent coin, he sent me accidentally to the wrong room 3 times in a row and spent 10 minutes trying to replace the roll of paper in the credit card machine... he he he. With a group i met on the bus, we had an awesome time exploring the Red Light District during the day and at night as it is a completely different atmosphere, the sex museums, coffee shops, Heineken brewery and all the many other places and nooks and cranny's that make Amsterdam... well Amsterdam.
