Amsterdam is the real sin city- and with everything that is legal there, visitors get a feeling for what individual responsibility really feels like. Canals run like arteries through the city, with colorful houses stacked alongside. The memories of history and art are dense, signaling back to the golden days of the city a few centuries ago. Most all of the locals spoke more than three languages, effortlessly switching between Dutch to flawless English, and were kind and welcoming. Bicycles are a lifestyle, and it’s important to try and follow the local traffic conventions to try not to piss off (too many) locals.
