Despite all warnings for busy trains, we donīt experience any problems with reaching Amsterdam Central Station. In the contrary. Outskirts of Amsterdam look pretty quiet. The square in front of the station is busy, but not exceptional. Trams and busses are not riding and taxi's are held out of the central area. We walk to Harlemmerplein where Weiwei will meet her classmates and other invitees and get on the boat from 15:00 till 19:00. As she already predicted, some (girls) ate late, so we wait for about half an hour before everybody is onboard. I have never been to Amsterdam during Queens Day, now with the first King's Day I do, because I want to bring Weiwei and pick her up also. I am not intested in the boat tour myself, because I am not a party animal and dislike load music. After they left, I follow the boat shortly in the direction of the Central Station from different viewpoints - mainly bridges - underwhile walking through Haarlemmerstraat especially to see what happened near Tibetan restaurant Snow Lion. Continuing with a last view at the student boat and walk across the city centre to the east of the center. Main festivities are at several squares and other open spaces with live music or dj's. Only AH ToGo supermarkets are open, untill I find 2 supermarkets on the westside of the centre (near Overtoom and Kinkerstraat) still to be open. In this area the street markets have already stopped and reaching the city center again some drunk young men behave agressive, I see two fights happening, so the party is over. More and more ambulances and police cars appear. Time to leave. I receive a message from Weiwei that she would almost be back at the same point where the boat started. I notice the boat and pick her up. Some classmates are drunk and need help to get home. We walk to Chinatown to have dinner in Kam Kee, as Weiwei wants. Some drunk dutch men at the table next to ours question us about our relationship. But they are kind and laughing. Around nine we leave Amsterdam, again with seats available in the train. Enjoy the pictures. A lot!
