Wish I had more photos. Got more for the next 2 travelogues.
Looking forward to more photos -- a picture = 1,000 words!

Thanks Eddie! I do have some more photos, including the overgrown bike. Just gotta blur the exes face out

Thanks man. Yeah I wonder what the percentage is of Grasshopper being people first cs in the years it was open. It was just there, like a big green beacon, no map needed.
Fairly high I'd imagine. For every naive newbie it had a strong magnetic pull as soon as you exited Centraal and hit the Damrak.

So if anyone can help please? I mentioned in this travelogue an Easter Island style head I'd seen and couldn't remember where, well I've found an image of it here https://www.discogs.com/Various-Music-F ... ase/245319

Any ideas hive mind?

[...]One random memory I have is of a big, brown kind of tribal face above a shop. Sort of square, not ornate, almost Easter Island-esque. I don't know whether if it was a cs, smart shop, bar or something else entirely. If anyone can shed any light on this I'd really love to know. And the places, the memories of places. We went in a cs a couple mornings, I seem to remember it was near like docks and it kind of jutted out the end of a block. It was fairly low rent but not shabby. Long and thin, lots of windows. Love to know what that place was, I thought it was out down Prinz Hendrikade past Central cs more east but on a later trip with R and C I dragged them looking for it until they begged me to go back.

Do you mean these Moai 🗿?

A coffeeshop that is on the other side and might be near to these Moai 🗿 could be Funny People (click me).

Here is a google view inclusive interior shots: https://goo.gl/maps/hrEXtutrcBuvC9o26
Thanks man but I'm afraid not. This head was on a wall above a shop. More 2D than a statue. Those Moai look cool though, never knew about those :)

Nicely done, made for perfect lunchtime reading. Thanks much.

I remember the giant head you mentioned. I thought it might be Coffeeshop Free Adam but can’t find any corroborating evidence.
Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
