-Amsterdam Part II- Coffee Shops and Red Light District



Onto the lighter portion of our holiday in Amsterdam. Today we really had nothing planned except to explore the city and sight see different areas. So we walked around all the small shops in the Rembrandt Plaza area and main road. I was a trip just to people watch and check out all the folks riding bicycles! We hit a few more Coffee Shops and met some locals in the area. It was a pretty laid back day...

Later at night we met up with our friend Tony and got to check out the much anticipated "Red Light District". I wasn't sure what to expect.... boy, this was one eye opening experience for sure. For the few who may not know what this place is about.... well... think of sex as a business.... yep.... soliciting sex is completely legal... as is many many other things just like smoking marijuana.... This place is undescribable in words... you really hafta be there and see if for yourself to get it.

Amsterdam is a pretty Liberal town... that's all I hafta say about that. ;)
