I'm zipping off to Amsterdam for a fews days of R&R in a couple weeks.

Looking for opinions regarding the best Indonesian food in the city.

Richard,

I believe my brother has friends in Amsterdam, so I have contacted him to see if he or they have recommendations. I will let you know if I hear anything.

Following up....my sister-in-law has not lived there since 1985 but she recommends Rick Steves guide book (I agree, never been bad advice) or Rick Steves website.

I read an article on MSN today about 13 places around the world that are being ruined by tourism. One of them was Amsterdam. Here was their assessment:

Amsterdam has long been a popular vacation destination for party-loving travelers, but chief marketing executive of Amsterdam, Frans van der Avert, told Travel Weekly, "A lot of smaller historic cities in Europe are getting destroyed by visitors. Vacation rental sites, like Airbnb, have had negative effects on the city, according to van der Avert, who said that vacation rentals have taken over the city's canal district. In response to a rise in tourism, the city has put restrictions on Airbnb in place so that a rental listing cannot have more than four people at a time, and cannot rent apartments for more than 60 days a year."

Perhaps you should do your part by not putting down your carbon footprint in Amsterdam.

The food in the White House bridge venue is actually not bad. Come on Tuesday or Thursday and you will be able to find a partner. HUMs are allowed on Tuesday but you need some luck to find a partner who wants to play them.
