Shopping Centre
“There is a lot to see and do in Amsterdam, all depending on your taste. If we were in the neighborhood, you could run into us and other locals at the small shopping center “Brazilië” at Oostelijke Handelskade (5 min walk). It has a Jumbo supermarket (cheaper), Albert Heijn supermarket (more expensive and fancier), Etos and Kruidvat drugstores, butcher, bakery (meh, Albert Heijn is better), liquor store, etc. o Tip 1: try some great Dutch herring, the famous street snack, at the fish store right here. Or get their also good “kibbeling” (fried cod) with sauce. o Tip 2: the Dutch street snack is of course french fries, to be bought at a snack bar. The snack bar “Kwalitaria” in the shopping center is the real deal. Make sure to get mayonaise on your fries, or peanut sauce. OR BOTH. Seriously. It’s called ‘patat oorlog’ (war fries) and comes with sprinkled raw onion (optional).”

Music Venue
“Odessa is a community based (floating) platform and holds space for a wide variety of cultural events. From dance acts, workshops, performances, club nights and festivals, to ecstatic dance, lounging, relaxing in hot tubs and saunas and enjoying refreshing drinks and home made foods. So basically they provide for anything what frees & fuels mind, body & spirit! They create exhibitions and other cultural and musical events, such as club nights spiced up with live performances, concerts, music & dance jams. So beware and expect the most celestial, magical and sometimes even extravaganza gatherings rooted in self-expression, art and communal efforts.”
