A Shmoke and a Pancake

schmokeHello, from Amsterdam (actually I just got back yesterday). Went over there for the weekend with Arthur, Clarisse and a few of their friends.

We got the red-eye coach, so we were all pretty tired throughout the whole thing, but it was cool. We hired some bikes. Art and Clarisse got a tandem, which they tried to buy at the end to take it back, but the rental place was having none of it!

The best bit by far was the Nemo Museum, (my pictures). It’s like the fun part of the London science museum but much bigger, and you don’t really learn anything, you just play with stuff. They also had a tiny display of skelingtons and fetuses (check the piccos).

We went to a few coffee shops, although I’ve never really got the hang of smoking weed. I was going to say we had a few nice meals, but that would be a lie. One night I had chips and nachos, the next a burger king and a kebab for breakfast. Nice work. I’m still regretting it.

We went to the red light district. I’d been here with my parents(!) when I was 14, and we didn’t see much, but that’s because it kicks off later in the evening. There were ho’s in the windows, but what shocked me was the fact that most of them looked so young.

Then back on the coach at 10pm, arrive in Victoria at 10am. Nice. Ugh.
