Dear readers of mine, how are you coping with the winter-situation? Yes, I’m back to one of my beloved subjects for the sole reason that, this week, I am actually feeling the greyness of winter kicking in.

One of my antidotes to the seasonal blues are parties were I can dance, dance, dance to some of my favorite hot rhythms: samba, cumbia, african and middle-eastern drums, turkish folk, swing, good-old rock’n’roll, you name it. That’s why you see those programs so often on the Amsterdive’s weekly agendas ( check what’s on for the coming Friday and Saturday!). Don’t forget that every listed event includes a link to its website, and free events are signaled as well. To get updates please like Amsterdive’s Facebook page. And if you did it already, you have a place in my heart, obviously.
