Artie laughed that he really enjoyed Amsterdam alone. "I didn't do any of the H's that I love: heroin or hookers. I took a boat tour and we went to the red light district...These whores are in lockers with windows. This was a Wednesday afternoon [so] some of them were really old. I didn't partake in anything...but I smoked a joint. It was fantastic weed." Artie compared his (legal) high to Jimi Hendrix's line in "Are You Experienced": "Not necessarily stoned, but beautiful."
Artie also praised the pancakes he got from the "fat little old women" in Amsterdam: "After smoking weed like that and walking a little bit...god it was just fantastic. I was by myself. I had an enormous pancake. I was so happy. It was probably the best afternoon I've ever had. I then walked off the pancake and got back to my hotel. I fell asleep and woke up at 1am."
