Well you really take your life in your hands when crossing the road in Amsterdam. And I thought Rome was bad! At least traffic will stop in Rome allowing you to cross. In Amsterdam it ‘s rather tricky crossing the road – and BIKES RULE! Even the buses are wary of the bikes.
So you want to cross the road – you must negotiate the cars , the buses, the trams and just when you have done that … Then there are the bikes coming at you in all directions (including motor cycles mind you). So good luck!
