Summary
This Pilot Guides episode features Jonathan Atherton's vacation in the notoriously liberal city of Amsterdam. He checks into the Hemp Hotel, which is pioneering the use of hemp in the construction of fabrics, food, and cocktails, and attends the annual Gay Parade, attended by 300,000 gay men and women. He bikes around the city, explores the 170 plus canals, and investigates the many galleries and museums. Amsterdam has a severe housing shortage, and Jonathan visits a government-condoned squatting area, which houses a skate park, artists spaces, and a bar. He meets two residents who design and make costumes for Amsterdam's alternative club scene, visits some of the area's marijuana-selling coffee houses, and stops at the Albert Cuyp Market, renowned for its global range of food and goods as well as Dutch favorites like sunflowers and raw herrings. On his last night in town, Jonathan attends a mass gay wedding
