The weird world we now live in
on: January 11, 2021, 22:59:34
I noticed two juxtaposed headlines in a UK newspaper just now that really sum up the weird world we now live in

Especially for UK and Dutch members :-)

that's odd news - nothing about that in Dutch Media...
That's not to say we don't live in a weird world though - but the news seems weirder that the world.

As an almost life long veggie, I know very little about ham sandwiches. And fully intend to keep it that way.

The other snippet is correct. It was even broadcasted on the 8 o’clock news.
Amsterdam under non corona circumstances, was flooded by young people who’s aim was to try and get as drunk or stoned as possible. In as short time as possible.
And to shag as many people in the red light district as possible too.

Now that the Amsterdam people got their city back due to the lock down, they’ve gotten a glimpse of how wonderful our global village Amsterdam really is.

And the Amsterdam Mayor is keen to restore the balance. Tourism is definitely OK, as long as we have the normal space needed to live a pleasant life in our city.

Barcelona experiences the same problem.

On some days the amount of people (inhabitants and tourists) double the normal amounts of people. Imagine that there are 900.000 people who actually live there, while on some days there are 900.000 tourists too.

The intended measures will not work as they will come anyway. And only a small portion will visit the musea.

Freedom has its limits.
It’s less strange that you’d think, I think. @MrBouzouki
Kind regards, Gus
