Getting Around Amsterdam in Holland - Tips for Business Travelers

The public transit system includes rail, bus and ferry so that visitors and residents often have multiple public travel options.

There's an extensive taxi system in place in Amsterdam, though it operates somewhat differently from those in large cities in other parts of the world. Pickup points are strictly identified and adhered to. "Treintaxis" (train taxis) are designated for travel to and from train stations. Passengers save money by sharing these taxi rides at specific times of the day.

If you plan to use the city's trams, buses or subways, you need to first know about the city zoning.

Antigua Guatemala - Latin Charm Beneath the Volcano

Antigua was the capital of Guatemala until 1773, when the Santa Marta earthquake rocked the foundations of the town. Still, the city retains its colonial charm in the extravagant architecture of buildings, churches, convents and old residences, which offer more than a glimpse of past prosperity.

Tourism is Antigua's main income generator. With more than 60 language schools in a city of just over 30,000 people, it's a popular destination for westerners to spend a few months studying Spanish amongst cobble-stoned streets and colourful neighbourhoods. In the evenings, locals and tourists alike arise from that fabulous Latin American tradition, the siesta, and head out to enjoy the wide range of local or international cuisine on offer.

Not surprisingly, the dreaded Ronald McDonald plague has spread to Guatemala. However, Camperos, the local finger lickin' chicken chain dominates, having sent Colonel Sanders and his army running for the border like...well like a pack of chooks wi…
