    Amsterdam is lekker

    More than anything, I love the kind of people that Amsterdam attracts, those who live there, and those who decided to stay. They're very cool and buoyant, practical, friendly, and easygoing.

    And then there's everything else: Its general permissiveness, the city's rhythm and beat and energy; the music coming out of cafes and coffeeshops and bars and the music, too on the streets.

    I love the city's architecture, and its crisp air. I love its sidewalks and its charming sidestreet shops. I like its cheese sandwiches, and the fries.

    I like the order of things there, and how they make terrific sense. I like how people break into happiness when the sun makes an appearance, and how establishments have nice window seats, perfect for whiling away the rain, looking at nothing.

    The first time I visited Europe, I put Amsterdam on my agenda. That was three years ago. I'd beeng coming to Europe since then, and always, Amsterdam is part of the agenda. It's like coming home! Or Christmas! Or my birthday!
