I remember a hawker from one of the live sex shows, he had a great pitch, the way he'd start by asking you what country you were from, and then list all the cities he knew in that country until he hit the one you were from. He was almost good enough to get us to go inside, but when he started talking about the "banana show" my wife lost interest.

I actually found the red light district boring compared to Damrak itself - hookers is hookers

I remember once sitting at a cafe (note - NOT "coffee shop"!) close to Prinsen Gracht & seeing two couples walking along the street - Both couples (they were not together) could have walked down the runway at any fashion event in the world - you know, GQ guy & Cosmo Girl - the first couple was wearing god knows how much in designer duds -

The second couple were whatever the Nederlands term for "Gothic skate punks" would be - she was wearing an undone vest (and nothing else) purple hair etc etc -

Only in the republic of Amsterdam within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.......

Sometimes mistaken for tolerance, IMO the Dutch are very pragmatic, and little seems to faze them.
I sometimes miss Amsterdam and Zandvoort, two of my favorite stomping grounds.
