Enjoying the Afterglow in Amsterdam


Afterglow (noun)
– Light or radiance remaining in the sky after the sun has set. (Oxford dictionaries)
– Sense of fulfillment, completeness, and general wellbeing that one feels after the effects of a psychoactive drug have faded. (Urban dictionary)
– The mildly euphoric feeling experienced after a pleasurable experience. (Wiktionary)

Amsterdam is a city of many facets. It literally offers all the kinds of afterglow mentioned above.

Whatever one’s pleasure, the canals offer something for everyone. Just catching sight of the dusk reflecting on them is enough to give me a high.



Where Do the Children Play?


Well you’ve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air.
Will you keep on building higher
’til there’s no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?

I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
– Cat Stevens, “Where Do the Children Play?”
