The trip was sponsored thru my school, and as i near becoming a master of my particular art I needed to have some fun and travel abroad.

The main point of the trip was to tour World War I battlefields along the Western Front. Place like Ypres, the Somme, and Verdun. Most Euro's will be familiar, Americans probably not so much.

But anyway, we stayed in a college town called Leiden, about 20 minutes from Amsterdam by train. We got 3 days of leisure before the battlefield tour.

It was a lively group, we even had a black chick.


The Dutch are cool people. All tall and lanky, and go about their own business. Many of them speak English.

There coffee and sandwiches are the bomb... as are the kebabs as i have mentioned.

I loved the Netherlands...the cities are so clean and safe. No ghetto shit and no redneck shit. Tht really impressed me.
I was surprised at the amount of graffiti tho. Possible result of Wutang corp???

Belgium was cool.
Belgian beers are the shit. Hommelbier and Westmalle or Triple as they DUtch called it was pretty tasty.

A bunch of Dutch students also accompanied us on the tour. They are great. All they really want to do is drink beer.

France was interesting.....I know basically no French and the French do not speak anything but French so it was a bit of a challenge, but not that tough.

The boulangerie's....oooh lord...so much deliciousness. I had an eclair that was out of this world.

Dutch and Belgian girls.....not bad. Not great tho.

French bitches are fine.
At one point I was drinking Belgian beer with Dutch people in a French bar. I had to soak it all in. Such diversity.

Amsterdam was pretty amazing.....It was near St. Paddy's day so i met alot of Irish people.
Let me tell you something, the Irish are some of hte most friendly and talkative people I have ever met.
I mean, they will talk to you nonstop.
They're tough to decipher at times tho.... I mean i can understand a Dutchman who speaks little english better than I can an Irishman.

Nonetheless I ate my share of Brownies and one of the irishman blazed a joint with me.
The Red Light district is cool, laid back I thought, but I liked that.
I was fucked up.
The Dutch guy who owned the bar was playing AMerican songs and the Irish kid knew all of them...

But damn none of these motherfuckers knew who LeBron James was....

Either way, I was tempted to fuck one of those prostitutes in the windows on the street. I didnt even notice them at first then i was like DAAYUM....them girls were fine.

i heard 50 euro was the going rate......that didnt seem to bad.


and the euro thing.....fuck, the dollar is shit.

My camera died before i hit the red light district, so i really dont have any good pics of anything anyone here would find interesting.



All i gotta say is that if you havent been to Amsterdam or Europe in general, you need to go.

I'm sure many here who have been will attest. I'll post a few pics later.

thx.

was it your 1st time overeas?

i hate the feeling of coming home after an overseas trip cuz you immediately feel the subliminal oppression and artificial culture we live in.

i was going to go to the wu-field trip but i think i'll pass and save my money to return to asia in 2010. prolly japan and korea. i still want to hit amsterdam tho.

why didn't you hook up with jasper?

French ppl kno English, they can speak it very well. they jus choose not to speak it cause to them you should kno French not the other way round.

western europeans wouldnt kno Lebron you need to go to the balkans to find ppl who watch the game.

Yea, that was my first time, and I definitely want to go back. About the artificial culture I agree 100%.
Everything over hear is thrown together cheaply for instant gratification...we are like a 'quickie' society.
The architecture over there, the way the cities are built is absolutely stunning. I mean, when i came home and looked around I was like what a shithole.

I was discussing this with some of the Dutch people.

Yea, I mean I tried to converse in French, but i never took any courses in French so i was really awful at it. Spanish and Italian i've taken two years each.
But next time i go anywher I'm going to make a better effort at learning the language.
It was tough tho, cuz just as I was sort of getting used to Dutch, we crossed over to France and boom, there speaking French.

But yea....about the basketball thing.....They barely knew Jordan or Shaq either. I had to like coax it out of them.

I would love to go drink beer in Europe and not discuss music with them.

Oh man...the beer in Belgium is unbelievable. ANd its all on tap which makes it even better. The Dutch were actually impressed that I knew as much about the beer as I did.

Me and my buddies were planing a trip for after graduation.

Belgium beer is the best-and i love beer, and i think everyone knows about Amsterdam.

this is true, all the cities in Europe are old and cultured, most american cities are like 100 years old maximum and are designed around the car so we have big ass streets and highways and ugly box buildings which are not too pleasant when your walking around at street level.

also, Americans have forsaken the city and have chosen to live in the Wal-mart and Applebee-filled suburbs, which is why like half of our big cities are dilapidated.

well we do have cities like dc, philly, ny and a few others tha are pushing 300+ years but its nothing compared to a city like florence or paris who is pushing 1000+

lets not even discuss giza, the yuccatan, shaolin.

Nice to see you enjoyed your trip, ive bearly been to europe myself, ive been to Fance, England, Scotland, Wales and Greece, and thats about it. Planning on going to Italy at some stage.

As for not understanding what Irish people say, if i travel 20 miles north or south, i can bearly understand what people are saying. The difference in accent in such short distances is amazing.

Sounded like a real dope trip.

9 days...well really 7 when you count travel days. The flight over was 9 hours, but its not too bad cuz the plane is bigger and they got tvs on the back of every seat. I just watched a bunch of movies.
Righteous Kill is a great movie. Dont understand all the hate from the critics.

I think we drove thru Rotterdam....looked like a pretty big place.

Ah yes....i had a belgian waffle but it was out of a vending machine. Pretty good considering.
But it wasn't warm...I did eat at a pannenkakenhuis....(sp)...and got a ham, tomatoe and cheese pancake. IT was decent but I shoulda stuck with a sweet pancake over savory.

did u take pictures with any foreign girlies

Yea, I got a picture with this real cute waitress we had....she didnt look dutch cuz she had dark hair....looked French or something. She was fine tho.

I wanted to talk to some French chicks in France, but again, I just did not kno the language well enough.
I went into a store in Verdun cuz i saw a couple of nice looking girls working, and I tried to converse, but it really did not work out too well. LOL.
But when i saw Au revoir, she got excited. Cuz I said it with a good accent. When speaking another language I try to get the accent right.....next time, I will study harder.


But yea I stuck out in Leiden...some Russian dude just came up to me out of the blue asking me where the coffee houses were in English.

Another thing I noticed. Americans are so fucking loud. Especially our bitches. Jesus Christ...hahaha.
Much louder than the Dutch.

Its all good tho, we're fun people but i can see how we get annoying.


I asked a few people what they thought about us.....Nobody really disliked us, just said we can be loud and arrogant, or at least that is the generic view.
The one guy said it was really bad because of Bush, but it has since calmed down with Obama.
We both agreed that its stupid to judge people of a country by what foreign policy decisions its govt. makes.

only in Spain because Spain actually has a league which is probably the best league in the world after the NBA and have a pretty damn good national side, every other country in western europe sucks.

Well, true...i should have specified northern europeans.

The Dutch told me a few things. He said Italians are arrogant, and very exclusive and that, well, everybody thinks the French are assholes, not just Americans.


The Dutch were also surprised that AMericans came in differing varieties, which surprised me.
For instance, our group consisted of Italian, Jewish, Polish, and Irish heritage, which we all still identify with.
I guess he was surprised that we all still identified with our european roots.
I told him, well, its different for different groups and the classic 'American' you see on TV or that is portrayed is really a generic portrayal.

The ethnic exchange was one of the most interesting parts. As interested as I was in European culture, they were just as curious with questions about American culture.
ALtho they get alot more via television than we do.
For instance, two of the Dutch were quoted South Park episodes and the Simpsons and a bunch of other shows.

They didnt like Family Guy as much, I thought possibley because they didnt understand some of the more obscure american pop culture references.

what part of France are you from?

Anywhere near Verdun or Arras?? I believe thats in the northeast part of France.

But no matter where I went, there was a McDonalds. I actually had a mcmuffin one morning at the Leiden McDonalds.

Well, the service there is alot slower, i'll tell you that. I was the only one in line and I had to wait for my mcmuffin.

The cheese and the egg tasted better, but the bacon is always a little too undercooked over there. ANd just different. Same thing in France.

I'm in France right now, for 1 week. On the eastside.

Not near any big cities but I might visit Nancy like I did last time I was here.

Most frenchies know more german than english.

I'd really like to speak the language, I actually had French lessons at school for 2/3 years but at the time I didn't care for the language and got bad grades, now I forgot most of it.
I'm picking it up a little though.

I like the nature the most, we don't have a lot of hills in Holland.

Me and a friend drove from Calais to val'd'isere in December. French I think is a pretty easy language to pick up if you speak English, 90% of the verbs are spelt the same I think.

The French are generaly nice people, I got in some good convosations with quite a few locals. Americans just dont like them because they are more real with their personalities and dont put on a stupid front.

Nah, AMericans don't like them, in my opinion, because for whatever reason, they don't like us, and they seem to act all snooty.
But my guess is, if they both just put all that BS aside, they'd get along fine.

Amen.

Who gives a shit about old buildings? They are cool to see, but how do they make your quality of life better?

We've only been a country for 230 years, and we are a melting pot with all kinds of different people. It is hard for us to have national tradition.

Plus, America's ideals make it dynamic It is about constantly striving and changing and maximizing success, independence, and freedom.

It is flawed and it creates problems, sure. But all in all, they are noble ideals on which to build a nation or live one's life.

That isn't to say there is anything wrong with Europe, or that Europeans shouldn't be proud to be European.

Except, Bosnians, who have nothing at all to be proud of. Just kidding, Bosnians. (not really)

right. I'm no anti-AMerican by any means. But city living in Europe, or at least the part I saw, was vastly better than what we have here, or at least, where I live.

Like I said....safer, cleaner, closer, very pedestrian friendly. Mom and pop stores. Much more authentic and not mass produced.

THe U.S. was like this 50 to 100 years ago to an extent....but its all getting ripped to shreds.
I don't kno whether thats good or bad. AMericans are very mobile people, we always have been, so that plays a role.


But overall, I was just very impressed with the places I saw. I wasn't expecting them to be so nice. I don't really know what I was expecting.
It was just good to see how the other side lives.

True....big cities are big cities.....altho Amsterdam still had that feel to it that I was talking about.

But I was more impressed with the smaller cities.

Leiden for instance.....Arras in France, and even Yrpes in Belgium.

It was cool seeing the different sizes of each place.

I dunno, i've never been a big fan of the AMerican suburban setup. City living is much better, but in the States, most city living is equated with poverty, crime, drugs, etc.

Most of our cities are falling apart.

My opinion is very biased because I live in a rustbelt city that has fallen hard. NOBODY lives within Cleveland city limits. If you do and your not poor, you live in one of 3 neighborhoods.
Everybodies in the 'burbs' and the suburbs are without a doubt the most generic, synthetic places within the country.
ANd its not even like suburbs are a step up anymore. Alot of them are just extensions of the ghettoness of the city.

I didnt see much of that over there where i visited.

I agree about our cities and i just really really dont like suburbs. They're so sterile and boring. Especially newer suburbs. They are completely designed around the automobile there is no street level environment, and not much place for human interaction, unless you meet each other at the post office or something.

Americans really just dont get city living at all. American cities suck, except for a few big cities on the coasts and like Chicago.

Once we built the Interstate highway system and started mass producing cars, every US just became neglected and "white flight" to the suburbs ensued. Which is why US cities have so many ghettoes and cities like New York were such shit holes during the 70's and 80's. Its still a problem today... Detroit for example, you can buy a house there for like $8,000 down WHAT THE FUCK?

and nick dont get it twisted, france got some grimy hoods, as do italy and england. even holland from what i hear, but i cant really compare with america. but i think the hoods in france are most comparable to the ones in the US.

well thats not a good thing or something to brag about....the more Europe starts to look like the U.S. the worse it is for Europe.

we can handle this shit...we got our own guns and our conservative politics.


good luck

Well first Paris suburbs aint as bad as ghostlaced says, I mean yeah seine st denis n all is pretty fuked up, but we dont got no guns, only the important dudes do, and they aint never rioting. First the police can enter, and they do, but if you're young, looking poor n in a rich neighbourhood, the cops are gon bother you for sure, so its like you cant come out. And when there are riots the gunshots toward cops are really rare.
I just came back from London, and one thing that surprised me, is how cautious they are concerning the legal age to drink, I had to show my ID every time, and none of my mates who werent 18 could drink, I was like the only one with a beer watchin the highlights of ManU beatin aston villa, not a really good night, but other than that it was really good.

The Dutch are cool people. All tall and lanky, and go about their own business. Many of them speak English.

my ancestors and I'm tall and lanky and smoke heady herb, I thought you all should know this

actually most of the Dutch I came across really didnt smoke much. It was more of a tourist thing or immigrant thing.
