HELLO, I’M HUGH
I live in Centre, East.
I work in All over the city.
I hang out in
Centre, East , Westerpark, De Pijp.
I am a teacher and writer and as such take constant inspiration from the city I live in - Amsterdam. This a magical and endlessly fascinating place which has been my home base for 20 years. I have had an international life having attended an int'l school as a child and lived in other countries too. And this is one of the things I most enjoy about life here the diversity and plethora of different cultures, foods and ways of living that makes Amsterdam rich. Take the Javastraat for example in the East of town - a little of the beaten track - and filled with wonderful local restaurants and delicatessens serving cuisines from all around the world, my favourite being a Syrian street food bar. This neighbourhood is a good place to start or indeed end a day in the worlds most colourful 'village' as Amsterdam is affectionately called by locals.
