Amster-fucking-dam, the old, luring place of escapism and primary destination for crowds of tourists from other continents. What a silly idea to spend my in-between days (between christmas and New Year’s) just here.

Although crowded as can be (or maybe even because?), Amsterdam has a charme that justifies its reputation. And I am not talking about coffee shops. I am talking about the shopping variety, the art galleries, street art, boutiques, night life, cuisine from all over the world and the pub culture.

I have been to one especially nice café (it’s one of those that have a cat – or are owned by a cat?): Café Fonteyn, right at the Niewmarkt. It’s at the same time cosy and bubbly, with friendly and professional bar service.

A must-see is Selwyn Senatori’s Art Pop-Up Gallery at the Dam square: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Selwyn-Senatori-Art-Gallery-Dam-square/230489190414205?viewer_id=1292183235 Selwyn Senatori is an Italian-dutch neo-pop artist. Here you will find ordinary things screaming vulgar messages at you, for example ‚Fuck this office chair‘:  http://flic.kr/p/dwJoRP If you are into loud, flashy, in-your-face provocative neo-pop art with a touch of Amsterdam, this is your Mekka.
