Ahhhh yeah, Amsterdam. This is where's its at. I love this place. Coffee shops everywhere ( There are a lot of fucking weirdos though. Its like Venice Beach with a weird Dutch vibe. Everyone just kinda looks weird. I dunno. Maybe I've been in a coffee shop too long.

My accomodations in Amsterdam are interesting. We're actually staying on a boat. Or ship, or whatever. But we are in this floating hostel, down in the bow, in cabins. This thing holds like 25 people. Hilarious. There's a second smaller boat tied to the side, where they serve meals.

Right next to our boat, there is actually an old, huge Soviet submarine docked. Craziest thing ever. Our ship captain said that the owner is selling it for $200k. How fucking badass would that own a Russian sub! I think I could turn that into one crazy ass hotel. FOr the price of a house, a russian sub hotel! I'm actively looking for investors. By my estimate, it could house maybe 50 people per night, you do the math. Of course, there will always be rooms on the sub set aside for the investors, should they want a weekend to "get away" and spend some time on their very own Soviet submarine. I hear it still sails, but I don't know if I'd ever submerge that sucker. Can you imagine loading that thing up as a party sub, submerging it, and taking it over to a club on the water and slowing emerging out of the water.

So, I'll be here for a couple of more days, then to Moscow after a day in Belgium. I'll be jumping on the crazy train across Europe in a few days. I am growing a moustache in preparation or the train trip. Not some cop-out fu manchu or handle bars. Just a straight across-the-top moustache. I feel I'll fit in better that way.

Ken's got some on his camera too that I'll post when I get the chance. If you want better ones than these, you'll have to email me personally.

Later on,
