Alright, we made our way to the infamous red light district of Amsterdam. I love the way Amsterdam looks, mainly cause when you’re there, there’s no doubt that you’re not in the states. The buildings are all brick, the alleys and streets very narrow and the roads are cobblestone. I’m going to have to get some pics the next time I head that way so you can see.
First off we went to dinner. We walked forever, or so it seemed like it to me. I should mention, cobblestone and skinny heels, do not go hand in hand, I spent a lot of time walking on my toes, LOL. But you know I would have complained about the walk anyways:) BTW, I swear, JK and Nes walk like they’re in a foot race, very different from my meandering, LOL. But I kept up (barely). We ate a Chinese restaurant, apparently the red light district (RLD) has great asian restaurants and they were packed. The restaurant they wanted had a wait so we went to the restaurant next door. To me, a good chinese restaurant had duck and pork hanging from their window, LOL. We all ordered an oyster in black bean sauce to start.
Nes and JK had never had oysters before. These were yummie but they were cooked, I look forward to them trying them raw sometime. I love raw oysters. Dinner was yummie, I ordered a mixed grill which was roasted pork, bbq pork and roasted duck, yum!
After dinner it was time to walk the RLD! In my head was picturing windows, yes, but I was picturing big windows over big room where several girls hang out. In reality you can walk down narrow alleys (so narrow people can’t pass you) and on both sides there will be girls in individual closet sized windows with yes, red lights over them. Some girls have bigger windows then others but really, most are just standing or sitting in a closet with a window. The bigger rooms have beds in them the smaller ones have a door with the bed behind there. There are girls to suit all tastes and I mean all tastes, shapes and sizes, LOL. Besides having alleyways full of girls the main walkways also have them, upstairs and down. Apparently the better girls rate an upstairs window. Since I’m a newbie I only got a downstairs one. But give me time!
We stopped and had a few drinks because really, the RLD is tough to take when you’re sober. I am all for the girls doing what they need to make a living but there is so much of it, it’s a bit much. And walking down the street you have men offering to sell you coke or ecstasy and of course, there are “coffeehouses” everywhere so you smell weed while you’re walking. I wonder if I got a contact high?
After we fortified ourselves with a few drinks we went to Cassa Russo which is a famous live sex show place. The RLD is known for sex, I had to see something. I have to say, I wish I would have saved my money, LOL. There is sex there but it’s so not hot. They have this one act where guys eat from a banana that this chick holds between her VaJayJay but she’s clothed during it and there is a man dressed in a monkey suit with a dildo that squirts out into the audience (we sat in the back and had drinks). Then there are acts with couples. I have to say, for the most part it wasn’t so hot and the men were ugly! Why is it only ugly men who are in the business? Unless it’s gay porn that is, LOL. Well, I can say I saw it and that’s pretty much it, LOL. It was live and it was sex. Next time I’ll save my money for a good meal or a stripper!
