Amsterdam Strip Clubs: Five free things to do in Amsterdam – Star Phoenix
… FILE – This Jan. 17, 2012 file photo shows a horse-drawn cart transporting tourists turns onto a bridge in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It’s not only the Rijksmuseum celebrating in 2013: Amsterdam’s canals are 400 years old this year, but strolling along the waterways never gets old. The scenery includes Golden Age mansions dating to the 17th century, converted warehouses and narrow buildings that sometimes look like they’re ready to topple over sideways.

Amsterdam’s wealth began in its port with the merchants who bought and sold everything from tulip bulbs to spices from the East Indies. A little of that mercantile past can still be seen at the city’s many markets. The most famous is the Albert Cuyp food market in the Pijp neighbourhood, which sells, as the city website puts it, everything from cheese to bicycle chains, six days a week. The prettiest is the Noordermarkt, a sort of grower’s market that sets up each Saturday outside the historic Noorderkerk church, next to the Prinsengracht canal. The best flea market is at Waterloo Square every day except Sunday close to the Amstel River.

Amsterdam Adult Entertainment: Freaked out by horsemeat? Try an in vitro beef burger
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands – If meat from a horse freaks you out, how about meat from a test tube?
The race to create edible, lab-generated meat could be about to about to hit the finishing line, as Dutch scientists prepare to slap the first in vitro burger on the barbecue.
“The meat labs would use only 1 percent of the land and 4 percent of the water associated with conventional meat, and greenhouse gases would be reduced by up to 96 percent in comparison to raising animals,” says the website of the Amsterdam-based Next Nature Foundation. “Lab-grown meat should also provide cheap nutrition and help improve animal welfare as millions of people in rapidly emerging economies such as China and India are rising from poverty and become able to afford more meat in their diets.”

Amsterdam Escorts: Amsterdam comparison
Re: Terry Paulson’s March 25 column, “Hard choices and loss of liberty”:
As usual, Paulson uses a scenario to justify something, this time gun control. He spent his entire column on his trip to Amsterdam and how the city was affected by Nazi control.
. However, he seems not to have researched the Netherlands of today. For instance, their current gun laws. They have some of the most strict laws anywhere, allowing guns for hunting and target practice, only.
He also forgot to check personal issues such as physician-assisted suicide, which is legal there as well as prostitution and same-sex marriage.
However, if he wished to try a puff of marijuana, which is legal in the Netherlands, he’d have had to travel north as the sale to foreigners in Amsterdam has been curtailed.
