I first came to Amsterdam in 1971 and fell immediately in love with its carnivaliesque charm. My first 25 years in Amsterdam I was employed by four universities and dozens of foundations to teach courses, analyze textbooks, write English, crunch numbers, and criticize policy. Then I worked a near 15 years as social researcher for another Dutch city, until deemed too old to continue as a civil servant.
Now that I'm retired I plan to rent out our Amsterdam home a couple months a year, while we relax in the eastern woods. I do this not only for the income to supplement my pension, but also to meet other travelers and provide them with the opportunity to explore and love Amsterdam like I do.
I'm rather allergic to the word 'hobby'; I tend to read, write and socialize a lot and sleep little. I've taken the opportunity to travel extensively thru Europe and a few other continents. Having grown up in California, I came to Holland addicted to sunshine, and still grab any opportunity to sit outside and soak it up. Politically I lean to the (far) left, particularly when it comes to environmental issues. If you liked Bush and hate Obama we're in for a debate.
Quite regularly I simply flash through in fast-reverse and marvel, 'I'm really having a great life!' I'm certain that only a tiny fraction of mankind has had as much luck as I.
