I am in the USAF, now a couple of friends and I decide to jump on a train and head to Amsterdam for the weekend. So we each load a backpack and jump on the train. Now here is where I ran into some trouble, I had quit smoking a couple of weeks before hand. I was good with this, that is until I stepped off the train. As a military guy I can not use certain substances, many leagl in Amsterdam. I get off the train and was hit by a cloud of smoke that was not from your average cigarette.......I needed a smoke BAD!!! Well after calming the nic fit, with an unfiltered lucky strikes, the group decided on a nice little dinner and drinks at the hard rock cafe. We each had a few cocktails and were ready to start the night. My friends go on the Hard Rock Cruise while I went back to the station to pick up the rest of the crew. Not seeing them at the station, I found my way to an open air concert where I was served draft beer by a man on stilts and sat under a cloud of familiar smoke. I have no idea who the band was, but remember several MTV Europe signs everywhere. The next day there was a host of interesting events ranging from a trip to the Anne Frank house, to the sex museum, to well we had to go the the RLD. I left with a love for the culture, the music, the scent and sights of one of my favorite destinations AMSTERDAM
