Don't get me wrong, I love Utrecht and have enjoyed living here for the past 9 (!) years. But every time I"m in Amsterdam, I'm reminded of how much I like this city as well. I was born here, so I can actually call myself a 'Mokumse'! That might have something to do with it...
My sister moved to Amsterdam about a year ago and recently found a lovely apartment in the city center, close to the Westerkerk. My dad joked I should move here too, because she lives around the corder from a craft store (which is atually called 'knutselwinkel' - how cute is that), an enormous beads shop, AND an arts supply shop. Seriously. Who wouldn't want to live here?? Well, my girlfriend, as a matter of fact...so I guess we'll just stay in Utrecht for now. But I'll definitely come back here a lot!
