So we are in the Netherlands at the moment. We arrived with hangovers and heavy packs. We stayed with Karyn and Tom for the first few days in Amsterdam before hiring bikes and leaving the sleaze of the city behind us. The country side is beautiful and appart from the occasionally vicous winds, riding is easy. We've got these crumby bikes, single speed with hard seats and cute baskets. Sym managed to get three punctures and a busted wheel but no serious injuries and we havent killed each other yet. We rode to the Hague and tried to guess were Wendy hung out. Its a cool dity. We stayed in this lovely little hotel that used to be a brothel. SDtill had the red lights, mirrored walls and shower in the corner of the room. Very odd.
From there we rode to Rotterdam. Its ace here. Theres so many different styles of architecture. Some really rotten and some fantastic, but somehow it all manages to work really well.
There is sculpture and art everywhere and theres a really friendly, creative vibe. So we have a few more days here before heading but to Amsterdam. Wishing we packed more than two teeshirts each.
Cant wait to hang out with everyone again really soon!
