Off To Amsterdam? This should be interesting a Washington Post article! Although the Mrs. and I loved our trips to Amsterdam (the Rijksmuseum, the Rembrandt Museum, the Anne Frank House, the Canals of Amsterdam, shopping and the restaurants), my advice is to stay clear of the Coffee Houses (now off limits to purchase for foreigners/tourists), unless you're 'into' those pursuits.
