July 17th, 2015– Bikes and Brews

Posted by on July 21, 2015

Today was the bike tour of Amsterdam with a conveniently timed stop at a local brewery. I, naturally, went for the beers with the highest alcohol content and ended up with the Columbus beer. As this was the first time I’ve ridden a bike in years, it started off pretty shaky and I was waiting for the inevitable ten bike pile up. Luckily, that never occurred. After the bike tour was finished I had my first overseas fish and chips experience at a restaurant adjacent to our building. Around 11:00 last night we went out to the bars/club. The atmosphere at the bars in Amsterdam is completely different from back home. The night ended around 4:00 in the morning after successfully navigating the streets of Amsterdam via the night bus.

  1. Food in Europe, no matter what it is, is better than the food in the U.S.
  2. Red and blue lights in the Red Light District are not a good thing.
  3. Tax is almost always included in the price
  4. People dress nicer to go shopping than they do to go to the clubs
  5. Crossing the street in Amsterdam is like playing a game of Frogger.
