Scary travel advice!

Ha! My neighborhood is listed in Wikitravel… only not as a tourist attraction but as a place to avoid:

In the larger cities, certain areas are considered unsafe at night. A few are also unsafe in daylight:

Amsterdam: Kolenkitbuurt, Overtoomse Veld

In daylight! Incidentally, and I don’t think I need to point this out: I happen to live in one of the least white areas of The Netherlands. SO STAY AWAY FROM MY DOMAIN WEALTHY TRAVELERS! It looks like we are a threatening bunch!

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
