I think the bigger question is: why does Lelystad hate trees so much?

The Dutch political party GreenLeft wants to raise hourly parking fees to € 10 or $ 14 in Amsterdam... Another good reason never to go to that city.

€10/hour? Possibly the highest public parking fee in the world. Good reason to use Park&Ride instead.

10 €/h is a fortune.

Just park your car at Abcoude train station, which is free, and than take a train to Amsterdam instead. It will cost you about 6 euros this way.

Well, there's absolutely no need to visit Amsterdam when you want to go shopping, every larger town offer the exact same shops as Amsterdam. The city make themselve more unpopular everyday, high housing prices already drove people to places like Purmerend, Almere and Hoofddorp, and I wonder if jobs will follow suit. Soon, Amsterdam will be a city of snobs and social housing.

For tourists who have never been there; yes, but I doubt if the average commuter from North Holland or Utrecht find the city as interesting as the Japanese.

Of course, but does the average commuter from Overijssel find Zwolle as interesting as a tourist? I don't think so. This counts for all cities.

Timon always says he's from Abcoude. I wonder, if he'd be offended, if I said 'Amsterdam sucks'.

Yes, everyone hates Amsterdam except those who live in Amsterdam or in Amsterdam's suburbs
