Old school and new school freaks

Back in the late 60's and early 70's we'd trek back to NL and touch base. Dam Square looked like an outdoor flophouse then....with long hairs from everywhere sprawling about the place playing instuments, drinking, blabbing and making out...doing the peace and love thang. Ditto the Vondel park.Hippies, punks, stoners,....Anti nuke, WTO haters, squatter scenes...youngsters see it as a place to spread their collective wings. Eventually though, they grow older, weary or burnout all together, go back home and become their damn parents. Scenes come and go, but A'dam will always be a magnet for present day and future lefty and other assorted fringe dwellers. Much to the chagrin of some natives btw. Goes with the territory.
