“It’s hard to describe in English. In German I’d say ‘freude am leben’. That would translate to joy in life. It’s not really something that works with daily or weekly progression. There has to be ‘freude’ in everything. And I’m happy and grateful to have lots of joy in my life. And this (the wedding) certainly brings a lot of joy.”

– Frank, who will get married soon. He came to Amsterdam for his bachelor party. Frank is cool and he seems like a very social guy. He approached me initially to sell me some small silly stuff. There is a tradition in Germany where the bachelor tries to sell small, silly items in order to raise money to spend on drinks for the party. Unfortunately for Frank, I didn’t buy anything.
