Ushered through Amsterdam by one of his loyal helpers-Zwarte Piet, Sinkerklaas rests atop his faithful steed-Amerigo, and surveys the throngs of jubilant Dutch children, all ecstatic he has finally arrived safely via steamer from his home in Spain with gifts in tow, merrily as it ever were.

The snow we're experiencing gives Amsterdam a certain veneer of gloom that is-nonetheless-satiating to the senses. This photo was taken on northern part of Zeedijk. I've probably shot this same picture around one hundred times. I think I may have finally gotten it right...

Hell month just began for all these Dutch fraternities and sororities. Nothing pithy to say; I never had to pay, get beat up or take orders to make friends. That's just me though.

A Dutch outfit. This woman seriously wore this out in public. No photoshop, no filter.

I think one of the nicest neighborhoods to reside in this city is Westerdok. It's an amalgamation of a Dutch dock and all of the beautifully-intricate bridges and boats that it brings, and gentrified high-rise condominiums and office buildings that work towards possessing the beauty of the old world. It's aesthetic chaos that is definitely worth viewing...

I was chatting with some Dutch chick that seemed to be one of those standard, doe normaal Dutch chicks. She mentions a friend of hers who is "the typical stampot-eating, boer Dutch person." I found her statement rather odd and had to ask, "Well, aren't you the typical-stampot eating, boer Dutch person? If you aren't, I can't tell." I have been fascinated with perception since relocating to the Netherlands. I have noticed that most Dutch folks are either unaware or ambivalent regarding…

Dutch food (and often Dutch people) are really bland. I think the Dutch themselves know this, hence the creation of the evil-ass United Dutch East India Company and the 17th century spice trade. So, to get some spice in your life, you usually have to holler at the immigrants. I’m an advocate of Toko Dun Yong on Zeedijk. They sell all those spices, rices and canned goods one is accustomed to getting in any respectable Chinatown. They also sell all those worthless porcelain Chinese statues…
