Clogs and dildo’s together at last

So I am no naive fool – I have heard of the red light district in Amsterdam (who hasn’t) but seeing it all in person, did blow my mind a little!

Actually it more sent my mind into a little spin of questions and intrigue.

As the smell of drugs permeated my nostrils, I walked around in a daze, not from the drugs but from the sheer boldness of the entire scene.

I mean really a shop that sells both clogs and dildos – Hilarious with a capital H!

I got to hand it to them the range of everything was as exciting as it was diverse.

From your cannabis drinks and lollipops to your willy candy to anything and everything in-between.

So I like to think I am a worldly traveler but even I didn’t actually know the coffee shops were where you went to buy your drugs – to walk in and see a menu with your drug choices on it amused me to no end.

Such a foreign concept.

Shops that sell everything from sex aids, tablets, mushrooms, fake coke cans and batteries to smuggle drugs – head shop was right – my little head was spinning out of control.

* side note I am eating a croquette from a vending machine, not something dodgy from the shop – FYI

So back to the ladies of the night (or are they in the day as well – I don’t actually know) there is certainly a body shape for everyone.

I saw young teenagers literally jumping up and down with excitement to seedy old men walking out after their business transaction was complete.

Sex, drugs, pornography (even in the form of lamp shades and gnomes) everywhere you turn.

Amsterdam is amazing and certainly an experience I will never forget.
