First stop Amsterdam

We had a long few days but we arrived in Helsinki via a day in Amsterdam. Amsterdam or what I remembered was a beautiful city full of flowers but in 20 years my thoughts have changed. Amsterdam needs Jesus. The first problem is sex, alcohol,cigarettes and legalized pot. It reeks everywhere you walk, people openly smoke pot on the street and even have pot coffee bars where we saw people laying on couches on coffee bars with water pipes, and pot smoke billowing out the windows. We also saw many sex related and immoral t shirts etc. We were saddened with the cigarette butts all over the place and unclean streets. Graffiti was everywhere and I mean everywhere. Train windows,walls,buildings, vehicles,streets, etc. It was everywhere. On a Positive note everyone spoke English so we had no problems with directions, and shopping. Everything was super great quality, the food was good, the trains easy to travel and well organized. Coffee mmmmm....
So the day ended with a late flight to Helsinki, broken luggage, an gregarious character to share a cab with, a smile and a bed to sleep in. Yahoo.
