Amsterdam (Part Two): Red Light District

I'm not going to lie, the Red Light District shocked me to the core. The ladies in the windows were expected, but not the insane amount of sex toy shops with things that make you go " Who the heck came up with that idea?!?!". It was an adult playground. The streets were lined with sex shops and the famous so-called "coffee" shops- that don't serve coffee. The air smelled of weed. It was definitely a (no pun intended) over-stimulating experience.

I couldn't bring myself to take pictures of the "crazier" things we saw, so the ones below will have to do and the rest I'll leave to your imagination.

Hi Elaine! We spent a week in Amsterdam a couple of years ago and loved the city. Somehow we never found the enthusiasm to explore the Red Light District, though. Thank you for sharing--it doesn't seem like we missed too much. :)
