I know I can ask Tjeerd this stuff, but he’s likely to make up some elaborate lie that I’ll buy hook, line and sinker and the next thing you know I’m wearing wooden shoes and singing “I’m a Little Teapot” in the middle of the town square. So, I’m asking you: Do the Dutch celebrate Halloween?
I want to know because it looks like the bus will be spending Halloween weekend in Amsterdam and I’m wondering what we can look forward to. What should we do? What shouldn’t we miss and what we can take a pass on?
I’ve only been in Amsterdam once and was on my own, so I can pretty much promise you that I didn’t hit the highlights. Or the lowlights. What I want to do is experience the city and have some fun while I’m at it. Oh, and I need suggestions for things that I can convince at least one other person on the bus to do with me so that if I end up in jail, someone knows where I’ve gone. Not that I’m planning on ending up in jail. I’m just sayin’.
So give me your suggestions. Tell me your stories of Amsterdam – the ones you can share without too much embarrassment!
Oh, and have a great weekend!
