During the evening, we headed to one of Amsterdam’s red light districts. I usually pride myself in how I blend in in different surroundings. However, this was not the case when we went to the red light district. We kind of stood out, we were both Asian, petite and the only women in some of the areas we walked through.
It was never in our plan.
My friend and I were working late at night when we simultaneously decide to travel to Amsterdam. Her program was cancelled for the following day so she had nothing to do. She decided to go then convinced me to accompany her. I was completely broke so she paid my fare for now. So there we were, at 1 AM running towards the train station to get tickets. We left for Amsterdam after three hours. It was quite tiring because we had to change trains and buses four times ( one bus and three trains). I did expect it, after all it was last minute.
