Walls and Windows

What was left of the Berlin Wall was one thing I wanted to see.

Berliners with little or no direct memory of the wall were not long ago demanding the preservation of the little that remains. Many believe it should be kept as a reminder to the German people and the rest of the world.

As a woman the other thing I was curious about was the red light district in Amsterdam.

Legal prostitution in Amsterdam is one of the city’s biggest draw cards, especially for tourists.

But wandering through the narrow alleyways and watching the girls seductive smiles through the windows, to me, seems only part of the story. I battle to understand the world of prostitution, and I do not mean to condemn prostitution itself, but I must say I was left with a sour taste after visiting the district.
