We walked along the streets and we were talking about all these drugs and the fact that cocain is illegal. Whilst talking we passed a guy and he obviously evesdropped our conversation and walked towards us and wispered that he could sell us cocain. Of course we declined his kind offer and kept on walking. It looks like even though they legalised soft drugs illegal drugs on the black market are still booming.
Near the Station Centraal (the main trainstation) you will find the red light district. As I said prosititution is legal and the ladies pay taxes and are being supported by the prostitute union. The women are offering theirselfs in windows, by posing half naked and trying to look sexy. Most of the windows are in very small alleysways which you can see in the picture. I felt a bit weird walking along those alleysways cause usualy the only women you will find there were the ones in the windows. Anyways, I had good fun checking out the area, guessing what might happend behind all those closed curtains. Kinda exciting...
It is not allowed to take photos of the women itself. So I appologise for not having any pictures for you ;-)
