What is the most unwholesome experience you have had with a stranger?

I lived in Amsterdam in the 1990s, working for a US Pharmaceutical company there. Every time co-workers from the USA came to visit, they’d want me to take them to the Red Light District and to smoke weed. It was so annoying, as I tried to tell them about the Rijksmuseum, good food, and drinking beer with friends.

I miss that place.

Amen. I spent three summers there in the late 90s. Lived with this kid from Israel for a while. His parents paid for a large flat in A-dam so that he wouldn’t have to serve in the IDF.
The Rijksmuseum is so lovely, those long mahogany hallways. The place often felt like I was the only person there.
I was a huge ganja head at the time. I would meet a crew of Americans and smoke them under the table every time. Sitting next to a big open window, sipping white coffees, three Americans asleep at the table with me. Good times, beautiful city, huge parks…
