Nice City,

However dutch people are quite racist.
And they don't shy away from the typical stereotyping.

They have a problem believing and accepting that a coloured person can be british.
Was quite shocked when my white dutch colleagues kept on asking where I came from after
having told them that I was British...

Never had this problem in the UK.

But besides their retarted racist celibiration of Santaclaus and the black slaves and their attitude towards coloured people.

It is an interesting city.

Amsterdam is an amazing city. Lived there for a year. Never a dull moment. Schippol airport is fantastic, and flights to many cities. Excellent infrastructure, road, rail, telecom etc. Air quality is good most days. Only downside, not much sunshine.

I find the loud, smelly motor scooters racing around the center everywhere you go a major turn off. It's an amazing city but there is an almost constant noise, pollution and stress caused by the motor scooters racing around the center. Many European cities have large pedestrian areas where you can shop & rest on a terrace without any traffic noise. In Amsterdam, there are hardly any places like this and the few there are, many motor scooter riders do not respect pedestrian only zones in Amsterdam.
