Welcome to Holland. Enjoy the canals (I don't want that 'other' association with Amsterdam).
You mean bikes? Cookies? Red Light? Which one is it?
Had a fun time there ~10 years ago, even if I did manage to end up there without my luggage.
I'm under the impression, but I might be wrong, foreigners often equate Amsterdam=Holland=marijuana, weed, hash, pot whatever you want to call it. Having been addicted and struggling for years to quit (not only that, but tabacoo and alcohol too, but marijuana was the worst because the way it lured my brain into an otherness to "get me out of this hellhole", but in effect only increasing the hellhole by making me less able to cope with life), my view of hash is very negative (though I'm pro legilization, illegality of drugs makes being on drugs only worse, it doesn't stop addiction but it does create a criminal market and even more debt and financial problems for addicts - users of illegal drugs are far more likely to lose their homes from expenses for their habit).
*Darwindamn, apologies for that sentence. I'm tired and creating sentences-within-sentences instead of proper writing.
My own current impression with Amsterdam is hectic traffic, lots of people, lots of impressions. Not too much fun either, if you're mind's easily overstimulated, though I do come there once in a while for a walk with my parents. The architecture of the canal houses, the facades, with it's masonry and sculptures and the facade bricks containing pictures of the trade and of biblical scenes are wonderful.
My current state of mind: I'm glad my weekend started (I normally don't work on fridays), but damn, I'm tired and talking a bit incoherent now methinks.
