Pre EuCo in Amsterdam
1st - 4th April 2018
Amsterdam, they call it the city of sins or Venice of the North. We would like to call it the city of freedom. Before you go to Antwerp, you need to go a realy city; call it Amsterdam!
Why? Celebrating the Golden anniversary from Rotaract The Netherlands (50 years) and Pearl anniversary from Rotaract Amsterdam (30 years). Time for some facts about this beautiful city.
That’s the number of canals in Amsterdam. In total these waterways add up to more than 100 kilometers or about 60 miles.
That’s the number of Xs in Amsterdam’s coat of arms. The XXX on the city’s coat of arms does not stand for pornography, so get your mind out of the gutter. Most historians say they represent crosses of Saint Andrew. St. Andrew was a fisherman who was martyred on an X-shaped cross in the 1st century. Amsterdam was originally a fishing village, so there you have it. Or it could symbolize the three kisses that Dutch people give when greeting. You decide.
That’s the number of bars and cafes in Amsterdam. Wow! That’s a lot of Heineken and better than the Belgium beers;)
That’s approximately the number of bicycles in Amsterdam.
