So we went to the nearby Bulldog to take advantage of what you take advantage of in Amsterdam. Totally awesome location in Leidseplein.

... went to sleep.
It was lonely, there was no laughter, music, stories or gossip, I felt isolated. I still had Jack and Ganzer, they had always been there though.

After all that walking I needed a nap, only to be dragged out a hour or so after by a Japanese chick, Mika, that was in the same room as me who wanted to go to red light district but didn't want to go alone.

... rain, but this was not such a day. Temperatures rose to well above 25 (or at least that's how we felt) and there were hardly any clouds in the sky. So when we arrived at the dunes and managed to find a cite where we could lay our towels in the midst of a vast throng of naked and screaming children, burnt 'sun tanners' and brightly coloured umbrellas. The sand felt like you were walking through flour and the water was ...
