"The city is beautiful in every way. The canal lifestyle, the summer green life, the leaning 18th Century buildings, the excitingly crooked people and the best place in the world to sit back and watch... We threw beer at each other for a good few hours and hurled abuse across the bar at the Aussies. As South Africans, thats what you do." Richard
