Very nice, OldTomato.

1045 in Amsterdam. Having a nice time so far. One of the girls barely drinks so my AV is isn't too bad- it's not like everyone's getting drunk around me.

It's weird people seem to drink less when I'm not drinking with them! Probably because I was always filling their glasses too to justify having more wine myself

Enjoy Amsterdam, mcflurry. Have you been to the VanGogh Museum; it's fantastic.
