What a bargain. Of course, the hassles of dredging bicycles (and drunk tourists) out of the canals does diminish the value of AmsterdamDespite all the water it seems like an illiquid asset. How would you hedge Amsterdam anyway? Short Venice? Sell cannabis futures?

     Tuschinski verkozen tot mooiste bioscoop ter wereld

Weinig bezoekers zagen afgelopen jaar filmtheater Tuschinski in de Amsterdamse Reguliersbreestraat van binnen en dat is niet alleen zonde vanwege de gemiste films. Deze week riep een panel van deskundigen van de Britse editie van Time Out Magazine Tuschinski uit tot ‘mooiste bioscoop in de wereld’.    

Well, you can walk into a movie theater in Amsterdam and buy a beer. And I don't mean just like in no paper cup, I'm talking about a glass of beer.

Amsterdam tells British men to "stay away" if they plan to "go wild" on a visit

Havenæt they tightened up the regulations on drug possession? Anyway, all bigger university towns will suffer this problem: hordes of vegans, Britons and junkies coming for food, drink and drugs.
BTW, found a website with most popular international students destinations (the Netherlands among them) and it's pretty expensive for most nations from which those students must recruit (several year long programs with tuition of $9000 pa). Why not studying for free in Poland or Norway?? No uni town vibes, because in free education you either cram for the exams or you risk being kicked out :-)

I know the profound interpretation of the profound sentence, but I can't help it paint in my mind flushing the toilet. Got a new throne BTW! :-D

Breaks down like this, okay: it's legal to buy it, it's legal to own it, and if you're the proprietor of a hash bar, it's legal to sell it. It's illegal to carry it, but that doesn't really matter 'cause, get a load of this, all right; if you get stopped by the cops in Amsterdam, it's illegal for them to search you. I mean, that's a right the cops in Amsterdam don't have.

Cool! It's the first catch-22 situation that I know of which traps the state, not them people. I have to visit.
