Red Light District, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum & Canal Cruise

I'm waiting for my stomach to digest my late lunch of Delimondo corned beef with piping hot rice (hehehe) before I go for a run around the reservoir, so might as well (finally) start my travel blog on my Netherlands trip last October :-).

Every now and then I have mental glimpses of the Netherlands and I wish I was back there. What I miss the most aside from the cool weather is going to Albert Heijn supermarket haha. I really love wandering in supermarkets of other countries, it's such a visual and olfactory treat (wow olfactory hahaha).

Anyway, pics below were from Day 1 & 2 of our trip. Enjoy! :-)

I mentioned in this previous post about getting culture-shocked in the Red Light district. Prostitution is legal in Amsterdam, but based on my research (a.k.a. wikipedia), most of the prostitutes are foreigners and I guess the market is mainly for tourists. But really, it's a different kind of experience. Most of the people were actually just walking around as if they were in an open museum haha.

Live Porno show anyone? :-P (I couldn't find a family-friendly one hahaha)

It was still pretty early so most girls weren't at their "window" yet... (Haha look at the lady peeking at the girl, the husband could care less)

Pics below were from Day 2 of our trip to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum & the Canal Cruise. These are just a few out of the many pictures I have in Facebook so if you want to see the rest add me up, just send me a message first that you read my blog haha.

Johnny Depp wasn't too happy to see us haha...

Madonna was tiny...

David Beckham may be goodlooking but his armpits stink hahaha...

OK I give up... hahaha

I couldn't resist pinching MJ's nose... I was afraid it was going to fall off... :-P

Next stop was the "mandatory" canal cruise...

The whole gang - Aileen took the picture... 
(L-R: Johann, Bob, Mom, Me, Aunty Beni, and Uncle Don)

One of my many amazing shots from the canal cruise (hahaha)...

You have to admit this is the MONEY SHOT... Ahem, someone give me an award please hahaha

I loved the Boat houses... I heard though they stopped allowing more boat houses on the canal (I guess to prevent pollution and overcrowding)

Up next are our pics from our North Holland Tour... :-)
