    Default Off to Amsterdam

    for a few beers tonight, and some 'how's your father'

    but what I can't find are any decent street maps of the area, I've been before, but not from the train staion, does anyone know a good site that can help ??

    I used to work there. I think if u catch the train to the Central station, you are only 5/10 mins walk from a plethora of hotels, cafes (Grasshopper) & red light district is 10 mins from station. Hotels there are a bit $$ so u might want to go further out. If u wanna to get stoned off your head, get a taxi and ask to go to Zombie. A top cafe that all the dutch go to and none of the drunk/stoned £5 Ryanair flight stag weekend football lovin English chavs.

    I'm staying in Utrecht, so I'll be getting a train in and out tonight, thought we'd hit the bars, etc ;0)

    I'll be going back every couple of weeks so should be fun (and expensive!!)

    Christmas in the trenches and all that ...

    I would recommend a beer w/schnapps at "Wynand Fockink" (*) near the Krasnopolski hotel, and grub at Brasserie Harkema by Dam Square. Both A1.

    Is the Banana bar still there where the nice lady writes a post card with her front bum? We were on a stag do and as the best man I had to finish off the banana!

    I keep meaning to go back with the wife as I'm sure there was more to see outside the seedy area.
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson
