It's cool, and I like that kind of thing, but if I'm at the Rijksmuseum, I'm there for Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Van Gogh.  Not ants.

Just sort of I guess.  Not as bad as I thought.

They should have a complimentary bowl of shrooms at the entrance.

It's Amsterdam. You should easily be able to arrive in your chosen state of consciousness.

I stayed in a hotel on the same street as the rijksmuseum.  Just across from where the hard rock cafe is.


The rijksmuseum was pretty awesome.

At least it's not Mutter Museum icky....
Next show after this one at the Rijksmuseum is a must see for anyone who can go

Years ago the National Gallery of Art in DC had a very large retrospective of Vermeer's work. It was wonderful. Surprisingly not too crowded, everyone was very, very quiet. The paintings were perfectly displayed. Magic.

It's illegal to sell 'shrooms ready for consumption (fresh or dried) because stupid tourists kept trying to fly while under the influence. You can still buy ready-to-grow kits, but the first 'shrooms will not be ready for up to 2-3 weeks depending on the type and temperature. Also, tourists will be banned from coffeeshops in Amsterdam so unless you bring it with you (not recommended) you'll not be able to smoke weed unless you buy from a street dealer, not an ideal option.

So they want to swap illegal activities in fixed places to illegal and violent activities everywhere?

But the exploitation of Eastern Europeans in the Red Light District gets to continue on pace, right?

I prefer the small crowds and great photography at FOAM

FTFY, and just yesterday, Amsterdam city council voted against banning foreign tourists from coffeshops with a predicted rise in street dealing given as one of the reasons not to go through with the ban. I only learned of this this morning.

As for the Eastern European exploitation in the red light quarter, well, the mayor wants to shut the area down and move all the women to a purpose-built brothel on the outskirts of A'dam. The Dutch, however, are equal opportunity exploiters and will exploit women from all over the world, not just Eastern Europe.
