Just had a walk through the city centre today. Have done the touristy things before. In Amsterdam you always have to beware of cyclists. They creep up on you so quietly and appear to be a law unto themselves, cutting across from the cycle lane at a moments notice. But look out if you venture into their lane at which time they employ their own form of road rage.
We took a shortcut through the red light district and passed the wacky baccy stores to the shopping area. Surprisingly we happened upon the gold and diamond store but it had not opened yet. In any case none of the items had price tags on them so used the old adage "if you have to ask the price we can't afford it".
