Its good to see that some things never change.
In Amsterdam the right to drink a beer or glass of wine in an atmosphere of thick blue cigarette smoke is being vigorously defended on the Albert Cuyp; a stone’s throw from our old apartment.
The Dutch have only just banned smoking in cafes and bars and it is not going down well with some of the locals. And just listen to that “mooi plat amsterdams”! I do believe I feel a little homesick.
