Ahhhhhhhh, Amsterdam~

It’s November, and one must open one’s windows in order to cool an overheated room. This is when the uniqueness of Amsterdam wafts in, making me think back a lot of years, “Is that incense I’m smelling?”

“Wait no, that’s pot.”
Amsterdam sure is aromatic.
And mellow.
I can see why they have so many incredible pastry shops, and people eating in them all night long!

I mean they even have cannabis lollipops. I never liked pot when I was young, but breathing deeply in my room now, inadvertently of course, as I type this, does bring up the possibility that this might be more medicinal to me in my soon to be descending senior years. I seem to be feeling really relaxed……

Amsterdam is unapologetic about pot. Here you can see oodles of it growing inside this historic old house boat in the UNESCO World Heritage Area.

In Kinderdjik Holland one finds idyllic scenes like these windmills built in the 1700’s and still in use today.

Holland is justifiably famous for its flowers,

and it’s artists!

  1. Last weekend, we spent a hour or so strolling through the Dutch and Flemish rooms at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Lots of tavern scenes. No pot painted in the 16th and 17th centuries. Enjoy your travels.

Hey, that looks a really cool, like, place, with er, like, water & colours &, like, other stuff, quite literally mind-blowing but, erm, kind of peaceful & things, it sort of transcends everything all around in a kind of way like music does, in your head, sort of trippy and (drones on for hours…) RH
