Amsterdam is such a classic city.  We found it to be a fantastic setting for riding our wooden cart through the lovely canal streets, playing our hot jazz song, Shine.

We met so many amazing people, young and old.  I had a wonderful conversation with a 70 year old Frenchman about hot jazz and that great era of music.

So many wonderful friends rode along with us through the canal streets, enjoying the wild scenery of the red light district and the idyllic, Vondelpark.  Our bike ride through Vondelpark while performing with a violinist while on the move was unforgettable.

Justin and I rode all around town and performed in a lot of different areas on the fly.  During our journey we came across a skatepark and hung out with some local kids.  Justin showed them some skate tricks up his sleeve and gave some skate lessons.

Unfortunately, the party never seemed to stop which took it’s toll on me.  The Flying Pig can be dangerous and the staff usually are the craziest in the party. Lots of drinking, shots, dancing, and smoke coming from the smoke room.

We met so many great people here from all over the world.  I had a nice dinner on the canal with Pernille and Marie from Bergen, Norway – we took a break from the wild nightlife and relaxed by the canals.

I have had some excellent conversations this weekend and am rejuvenated by my stay here in Amsterdam.  Goodbye Amsterdam.  We shall return soon in July.
