In September, 1999, after
playing in the Ultimate World Championships in Scotland, we had
to go to Amsterdam to catch our flight to Botswana. We took a supposedly
luxury ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam ("supposedly"
because every public space on the ship was rank with cigarette smoke,
so we couldn't really enjoy it), met up with a friend in Amsterdam,
and spent a couple of days there before our flight.
Amsterdam was fairly
pleasant. Just as we've heard, lots and lots of people ride bikes
for transportation there. We took a nice ride on a canal tourboat,
visited a flower market, etc. We skipped the very crowded Van Gogh
museum, and did not visit a diamond wholesaler, either.
I have a few decent photos
from Amsterdam, but realistically I'm not sure I'll get around to
putting most of them on my site. Click the links on the left to
see a couple of them. If you've got a burning desire to see more,
me and maybe I'll scan in a few more.
