Like I said, we were hungry, so our next stop is
Not going to blog about dinner anyway.. going to blog about after dinner..
Paul is bringing us to arguably the most famous place in Amsterdam..
(18SX from this point onwards, parental guidance suggested =D)
Well, the place is not called Red Light District for no apparent reason. My next photo will tell u why they are called Red Light District. If u don't know what Red Light District means, refer to the photo below too =D
Along the main street of this controversial district, there's many many many small units like these, brightly lit with red lights. They will do whatever they can to seduce passers-by, either by dancing (like in the photo), stripping, or just sit there naked facing the public. Yes I mean NAKED, BARE STRIPPED!
If anyone is interested, just go to the door and knock. Then the chicks will go into the room behind, not visible to the outside, then the 'customer' can enter after that. If u happen to see any unit without the chick dancing or stripping around, u know what that means =D
*Shit, I forgot to mention that actually, this district is off limits for photography, according to Paul. There's officers patrolling the area, and if u get caught taking photos, you're so screwed... so u are actually viewing illegal photos*
The main street is filled with those red light units. Abit further down to the alleys, u get
Another signature of this Red Light District is the Live Sex Shows. There's cheap ones
There's also full fledged ones costing more than 30 Euros per person. Half of our tour group opted to go for the show, while the remaining not-so-wealthy half decided to skip the show, and I'm in the latter half..
U might say that it's a once in a lifetime experience but, somehow, I just don't feel like parting with 30+ Euros (RM150+) for a sex show...
So what did we do while some of them went for the show?
The show lasted for about 2 hours, I think it's because there's a repeat or something, but they came back to the coach really late, and our drive Steve was very pissed with the delay. He was working way pass the 12 hours mark that day and if caught, might have his driving license suspended..
Anyway, made it to our hotel.. NH Leeuwenhorst Hotel.. 45 minutes away from Amsterdam..
Nothing much to do, since it's far from the city, contradicting with Ah Choy's (tour organiser) claims of "The hotels is very near city centre, u can go out by yourself at night!"
Go to bed, hoping for tomorrow to be fun as well...
