Everywhere in The Netherlands!: New Years Eve
If you are bored with the same old hangover on New Years Day, or the same old partying OR just sitting in and missing everything then GO TO HOLLAND its sheer madness and everyone should see it once!
At midnight on New Years Eve Health & Safety is thrown to the window as the residents on every street come out and light fireworks in the front garden or the path outside their house. They light braziers, candles or anything that will burn and set off the most powerful of fireworks - the like of which in England we would only see in a formal organised 'pay to see' event.
You really need to be there as words cannot give you the full effect, with bangs and wizzing going off from every direction its deafening and I would image just like being at the battle front. Although no one is aiming for you there are random wayward fireworks that shoot down the pavement and through the parked cars!
Give it a try! I now go every year!
Dress Code: Something warm plus a camera and tripod!Related to:

Amsterdam Red Light District: Night "window" shopping
Along one of the canals is the infamous red light district of Amsterdam.
Many things are legal in Netherland including prostitution. There are adult book stores, adult shows as well as hookers displaying themselves in windows beckoning on-lookers.
Recommend going in a group and just window shop only.
Cafe Wiener: Cafe Wiener
We stopped at this little bar, shared a few laughs and drank a few beers with the owner. She gave us the perspective and insight of a local Amsterdam resident. We had the run of the bar, trying drinks native to the area! Your in the right place if you look up and see money (bills) from different countries, left by customers posted on the wall.

Yes as you see it is the Bike!
The bike is a wonderful discovery, very clean for ecology, very good for your health, and very economic for your pocets and budget, Dutch people understood this very well and very soon, and they reacted like civilized persons should, so almost every one has his her bike, and there are lightsigns for it, and special streets for it too :-D
Cuba baby in Amsterdam!
If you are a fan of big Cubian Ciggars!
then Amsterdam shops is your paradise, we went Ali *sachara*, Carin *Catnl*, Co and I, in a night walk and we stopped and entered that huge shop, admired all the flavors and smells and had a good idea and went out, as none of us was a Ciggar smoker LOL!Related to:

Be careful though
Though you have to be very careful, I tell you this story, it happened with me under the eyes of Catnl, and Sachara!
I like a simple naive guy, wanted to take a picture for my hot nightlife tip on VT, as everything seemed to be perfect, beautiful ladies, sexy bodies and they were smiling to me, BUT, once they saw my little camera out to shot, they turned there backs and got out with bottles of water and in a scandle way they give me and poor Carin *catnl* a cold bath of water in the night, they were enough aggrssive with us, but the thing that I never knew it was forbidden to take photos, so please don't do that ever!
just watch and go!
or if you want watch, enter pay money, do your job and get out LOLRelated to:

Red Light District
Red Light District is the heart of the famous Dutch spirit of the night, spirit of the freedom and spirit of the ligalization of prestitution!!!
the moral of it was to make control of this very old buisness, and to control the whores!
but it still not understandable for many people, espcially the religious or conservative ones, I see it as a real fair way, to avoid scandels and problems, hot women will be presented on the Vetrines just like a product to buy, I mean it was like this since ages, nowadays it is back like thousands years ago where in Babylon for instance men could enter temples to have sex with whores, today you go and pay money to have sex, what is the horrible thing on it?!!
instead of hiding it, everything is controled!Related to:
