"Four people who were blind from birth were led to a tame elephant and asked to describe it.
Lacking the faculty of sight, they used their sense of touch to discover what an elephant might be." http://www.vridhamma.org/en1993-03-04

4-elephants

Each of them interpreted the shape in a different way, and nobody identified an elephant.
I help promote your own business, and let people see your elephant through their own eyes.

Living Amsterdam BLOG is back!

LivingAmsterdam.com is back online.

amsterdam blogLivingAmsterdam was born from the philanthropic vision of Robin Travels, social enterprise funding school projects in developing countries like India, Thailand and Nepal, through an online booking system, and literally banned by big corporations like booking and ex-pedia.

Now LivingAmsterdam offers free information, doing its best to help the travellers through an authentic and deep discovery of a marvellous city. Amsterdam indeed has much more to offer than its beauty, museums and, of course, its substances.

Now banned by the government, squatting was legal until 2013, and it produces a impressive, authentic and intense sub-culture, a city into the city. Nowadays squatting is not legal any more, but the wonderful products of those years survive through artistic and social initiatives like Cinemanita, Overtoom 301, or Mezrab.
