    Climbing up or down the stairs was the most perilous thing, especially with a backpack and luggage. The shower was in the same little room as the toilet, which made it complicated to wash ourselves. The room was very small and simple, but everything was clean. The good thing is that there are a bunch of good restaurants and bars next door, the flower market is on the next street and the city center and Red Light district are pretty close too.

    --We saw an ice cream shop that sold marijuana ice cream.
    --The souvenir shops sold bongs.
    --There is a porn station on regular TV as you scroll through.
    --People FAC'd on the ferry on ...

    This synagogue was spared because the Nazis were going to use it as a museum. The Nazis wanted to show how the Jews used to be, and demonstrate how dangerous that the Jews were.

    ... many bikes as people, so the tourist must be very wary not to step into the designated bike path. There are special bike seats for babies and toddlers as well as tandems for adult and child partners. There are many geezers whizzing about on two wheels! I forgot to mention the American Hotel which has a gorgeous Art Deco dining room. It was too early to eat there, but we did have cappuccino outside. Yes, we know we are living the good life and are very ...
