Holy fuck. Hostel prices double on Fridays in Amsterdam. Good thing I leave on Friday morning. Also, that was an awfully last-minute booking. I'm not quite as centrally located as I could have been, had I planned ahead. Anyways. It just means I'll have to hire a bike.

My mother suggested that I keep a travel diary. While I think I'll have free internet the whole time, I think I'll get a paper thing anyway. I certainly remember the hostel in NYC which had 3 terminals for about 100 people.

SOOOO weird. The Social Democratic Party of Austria (SPÖ) has been putting on what's Europe's largest free music festival, Donauinselfest (literally, festival on the Danube Island) since 1984. Cool. What's funny to see is that it's mega-corporatized, with sponsors all over the place. Now I understand that you don't organize a free festival without some massive injection of cash from somewhere, and even publicly supported festivals in Canada have sponsors all over the place, but it's amusing that this is specifically coming from a social-democratic party.
