“Amsterdam It Man 1” – 5 days in

Well, not really much going on, other than a fucking volcano!! WTF? This happens to me, WHY?  As of now, no flights. At sounding paranoid, I went ahead and booked my accommodation for an extra 5 days, just in case. My flight back to Philadelphia (then on to RIC), is still on for the 21st. If I have to stay longer, I am covered. Good thing to, because there is not an empty bed here, or anywhere else close, for that matter. Alright, now with the dirty….

First day in, late morning, bad bad jet lag all day. Forced myself to stay up until midnight to get “acclimated”.  Worked out well. First stop was “Barney’s”. I was there until 4 in the afternoon. Had some Nepalese Hash and some “NYC Diesel”, which was kick ass. Ate there. Just chilled chilled back at the room and watched the view out the window that night. Watched some TV. Went down the street and bought a bottle of Jenever later that night. Passed out around 12:15.

2nd day up and off to the Dampkring. In my opinion, it’s the best in Amsterdam. Beautiful place, great menu, great staff. 10 + in my book.

3rd day sick all morning. (Jenever). Out at 3pm for food. “Hutspot” with some braised part of a cow. Some Streusal bread.

Yesterday and today strolled around the square. Pissed in a public urinal and hit my 2nd fave, The Grey Area”. Got some Jack Herer. I like the The Grey Area, lot of celebrity stuff here, best bar and music overall.  (Went by the “Free”, but it was crowded, so I plan on going back by there Monday. Tomorrow is probably going to be rest day :p.  Stay in, not much going on on Sundays.

More later.
