After a great morning tour of the Anne Frank Huis, the class met with a former sex worker and head of the Prostitution Information Center – Mariska Majoor. She had a wealth of information regarding how the sex labor force operates in Amsterdam, sex worker rights, and the issues surrounding the industry. We briefly toured the Red Light District (RLD) for those who have not had the opportunity to see much of it.
The RLD is not nearly as overwhelming and breathtaking as some might think. That said – it really comes to life in the evenings around 21:00 and later.
