I am finally back on the road once more, first stop before my flight is Amsterdam. There is a lot more to see than just the drugs and sex, neither of which I plan to partake in whilst here!
I will update more fully at a later date as there is someone waiting for the computer right now, but my highlight so far as been eating horse meat. It was pretty disgusting. Fried in a ball covered in breadcrumbs, in Dutch called ‘bitterballen’, it looked quite appetising from the outside – inside however was another story. Rather than solid, the centre was practically liquid with bits of strange tasting meat floating around in a cloudy brown substance. I am glad I have tried it, but I can’t say I will again!
In typical Mullett family tradition, the Royal Palace, which is described as, “Amsterdam’s most prestigious architectural monument,” is spectacularly and entirely covered in green tarpaulin and scaffolding and closed until further notice.
I have also noted that the Dutch are very, very tall.
