Brianna Barnes and Jonathan Atherton travel to Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands. They start by exploring the compact city centre, built around a network of beautiful canals overlooked by the gabled mansions of 17th century merchants. Whilst Jonathan looks around using the locals’ favourite means of transport, the bicycle, Brianna takes a tour of the waterways with the free-spirited Saint Nicolaas Boat Club. Amsterdam is renowned as one of the world’s most liberal cities, and en route they check out the city’s famously tolerant attitude to soft drugs like marijuana, and the nefarious goings-on in the city’s infamous Red Light District.
Jonathan Atherton arrives in Amsterdam, a city notorious for its liberal attitudes to drugs, sex, and hedonism. Although he is intent on discovering the less infamous sides of Amsterdam, its museums, its canals, and its architecture, Jonathan is not going to let the alternative Amsterdam pass him by.
