Reflections Of Amsterdam - We Come In Peace!

Unedited mobile phone cam shot of tourist ladies in front of the Munt tower, reflected in a puddle in Amsterdam. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

The Munt is one of my favorite buildings in Amsterdam, I've taken already plenty of puddle pictures of it. The area is usually stuffed with tourists that come to the best city in the world to hang out with us and try some of the pleasures that we offer in such an inoffensive, playful way that most of these visitors have a hard time understanding why they are outlawed in their own countries...and so do I, it does not seem to make much sense to claim that if you forbid something, it will disappear, this has never worked and as we all know drug-(ab)use, prostitution and wild-style bicycle-riding are things that most humans crave, if you tell them not to do it, of course they'll feel compelled to give it a try anyway :)

Luckily for us Amsterdam people, these things (usually) do not cause the tourists to freak out and burn down the Hotels they're staying in, or to lose their minds and go on Killing-sprees, as it is often claimed by those politicians and lawmakers that try to treat the majority of mankind like stoopid children...to tell somebody who's grown-up and manages to hold down a job and/or run a family, that he/she can not use certain extremely useful, allround-purpose plants because they're EVIL and that they can't have the occasional (paid for) encounter with the opposite sex simply does not work, it makes these things just a whole lot more attractive and desirable...but who am I to judge a system that rules most of this planet, haha ;-D

Seriously, who do they think they are, your parents?! Hope not, lol!
