... to call out to people. I was surprised they were there during the day! Ok, enough about hooking for now.

I first started following a walking guide I had on my iphone but then gave it up and just started walking randomly. A visit to Amsterdam can't be complete without a walk through of the Red Light District so I made that my next destination. The place is loaded with coffee ...
