      It's just lacking the ungodly amount of tourist nearly pushing each other off the canals, and the ridiculous amount of street vendors selling any sort of small drink for nearly 5€ to profit off the dehydrated tourists

    I'll mention here and now that the news posts that went up near daily will more than likely be coming to an end soon.
