The Red Light District in Amsterdam is a very busy place with a strange mix of life in one small neighborhood. It a strange way it’s very beautiful – there’s so much happening both visually and mentally it takes a bit to process it all as you wander through the rouge colored alleys. For obvious reasons, it’s a very unique place to visit. As a woman it’s hard to look at the scene without thinking “What if…”. How do women end up here? Do they want to be here? In another life, could I be standing in their place? There’s so much to think about while walking through this area.
Even stranger perhaps is that this area is such a major tourist attraction. If you're looking for seedy, scary alleys you won't find them here. But you will see tour groups, families, restaurants and sex shops.
