Going to Amsterdam!

Food — By Crust on July 30, 2009

Kyle is still in Europe and I think it was really brave of him to go over there to cook. The least I can do is go over there to show my support, and stay at his great aunt’s house for free. You see, Kyle is a pretty little dutch boy, blonde hair, wooden shoes, likes chocolate. His next stop in Europe is in Amsterdam, where he has family to stay with. He skyped me covered in blood after getting in a brawl in a bar in London and said. “Crust, you said that if I really needed a friend you would come down here. You hop on a plane?”

I’m settled into my house with nothing but the trim on the outside left to paint. I’m not excited to get a job here; plus I just had my birthday and
I was feeling a bit vulnerable, like life is short. If there was ever a time in my life when I genuinely have no strings attached this is it. I’m living in my own house with no rent, no job, no partner. So I agreed to fly down if I could find a flight for $1000 (fuck, that’s 1 month’s rent in Van, I can spare it) and get a stage for the month I was there. I got my flight and I got accepted to stage at a restaurant called De Kas. I fell in love with the place when I saw the greenhouse that they have, and it is all local and organic, which is what I like. So on Friday I leave for Amsterdam for a month stage at De Kas.
