My bathroom in the Andaz had Spinoza wallpaper. Led to me being able to joke that the only place you're allowed to learn Spinoza is in the bathroom.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

We are going to Amsterdam for 3 days in July, arriving 9AM on Monday, leaving 2:30PM Thursday. We plan on going straight to the gardens as Dan did, made reservations at Anne Frank museum for Wednesday,  but am curious about purchasing a 3 day travel pass which includes entrance to museums, canal ride and unlimited public transportation. Would you do that? We are 4 adults.

https://www.chabadamsterdamcenter.com/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/3067396/jewish/Tourist-Info.htm#Kosher_shops_and_restaurants:

Also per Dan's TR, Chabad itself has something. Their website just says they have a "coffee corner" but it seems like they have more than that (which would have been great to know when I was there).
