... chocolate (and perhaps other stuff).

We must hand it to Amsterdam, it is certainly a city in the world like no other – you just don’t get prostitutes in windows, legal cannabis, canals, and hundreds of bicycles all in one place. Perhaps the only downside really is that the city (unsurprisingly) attracts some of the world’s more undesirable people; although we must be fair and state that Amsterdam certainly still has a safe feeling/atmosphere to ...
