AMSTERDAM – world dog poo capital

Amsterdam is cleaning up its act. It used to be notorious as a town where you really needed to watch your step. These days there are less dogs and more responsible owners. But not everyone has got the message yet.

When you find dog poo on the street you can (a) step in it (b) step around it (c) clean it up, or (d) leave a note in it.

This one says, loosely translated, ‘My owner is an inconsiderate asshole.’ Mevrouw T assures me it sounds even worse than that in Dutch.

    Thanks for the warning. I expect to visit in September and will definitely pay attention.

  2. Seems like Newtown circa 1982.

  3. That is some claim to fame.

  4. Dog poo is one of my overriding memories of Amsterdam and not one I would think the city wants to be associated with. I hope the citizens can clean up their act for good.good.
