“...the smell of canals and cigarette smoke, all the people sitting outside the cafés drinking beer, saying their R's and G's in a way I'd never learn... Some people think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin!”
- John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
Amsterdam... a city that boasts of a unique culture… a city in which thrive a hoard of young, vibrant, and inebriated youngsters and which still values its medieval art with its plethora of carefully preserved lovely old buildings and amazing artwork. It is a city where you can absorb yourself in the lovely artwork by great painters like Van Gogh and Rembrandt, and cruise through the canals by the forward-tilted, pointy-headed, traditional Dutch houses during the day, and by the night, party like there’s no tomorrow, in the city’s rocking clubs, intoxicated with the magic mushrooms or the hash brownies, and walk through the city’s world-renowned red-light district drenched in fluorescent lights.
