The Huffington Post has a nice post from Erin Farber in which she explaines what Americans can learn from “Amsterdammers” (people form Amsterdam). These lessons could make your visit to Amsterdam, or Holland for that matter, even more pleasant. E.g. “tell it like it is (politely)” or “eat fried food (in a bar)”. We think the best is: “ice skate as often as you can”. True, you can skate in Amsterdam from October 13, when season opens on Jaap Edenbaan.
