Park It Right

Amsterdam has many parking bicycles to park their bicycles. Leaving it on the street, you better use a thick chain and a hardened steel lock, because the theft of a bicycle is not regarded in Amsterdam as a real crime. It is more like not giving back the book to the library, or borrowing somebody's umbrella when it rains. Each year, tens of thousands of bicycles just vanish from the streets of Amsterdam in an inexplicable way. Certainly - some of them are resold or exported, but not as many as it may seem. Some people say the ones that disappear, all land on the bottom of the Amsterdam canals, stolen for a day or two and later thrown into the water.
