June: Amsterdam

My favorite city in Europe (after my hometown, Kecskemét, of course). Life, art, culture: these are the words that symbolize this place for me.

Of'course this city has its dark sides as well. It is very liberal considering drugs(you can smoke pot in public bars...) and maybe this policy has weird sideeffects:
- I was offered cocaine three times. (This time only in my whole life)
- Shortly after midday I was on the main square before the town hall. Suddenly I saw a man wildly running through the square into the town hall, starting to attack it like mad. He was kicking the building and shouting like mad until after a few minutes he got tired and sat down. Nobody cared, it was kind of "normal" here, it seemed. I was just standing there astonished.
But still, I would love to spend a few months in this "crazy" city.
