026: Wandering guitar player
Most Dutch living at some distance from the Dutch capital know it already: whatever you can imagine, you’ll meet that in Amsterdam. Anything that is odd, crazy, weird, it’s there. Sometimes, Amsterdam appears to be a city without limits, where you can meet people pushing their limits, people who have no limits. Everything sees to be possible. And if not, people just do. They just do what they want to do. Even then they are lacking talent, skills for that. Like this man, wandering, with his acoustic guitar. People in the street stopped their activities, when he walked past them. He was singing, but he clearly didn’t have the talent for that. Absolutely not. But he was just doing what he loved to do: playing guitar and singing in the streets. And gaining little money too!
