The buildings often bend a little bit
Peyote the cactus
A "coffee shop" basically a place to buy and smoke marijuana, but there were people walking past me on the street smoking a joint just like it was a cigarette, probably on their way to work
The red light district
There are bikes everywhere
Absinthe by Van Gogh
The red light district in Amsterdam. I'd always heard about it but this was actually it. The women are quite the salespeople too, trying to get you in.
My hostel (the green sign, Durty Nellie's) beside a strip club, I was staying right in the middle of the red light district
The houses have hooks on the roofs because they are too narrow to move furniture in, so it is hoisted up the front and brought in through the windows
I almost went to one of these shows, thinking when will I ever see something like that, but it was too expensive for my meager budget
I was expecting Amsterdam to be all red light district and marijuana cafés but it's actually one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. There are canals and narrow, bendy houses all over the place. Plus the Van Gogh Museum is here.
