Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands with its 800.000 citizens. the city is well know for its Red light district, the drugs, the Canal houses, and many more.

here are some things that you can do in Amsterdam, etc etc.

The red light district

the red light district is right in the centre of Amsterdam, there are a lot of nice cafe's , porn cinema's , and CHINA TOWN. so why do they call it the red light district??? because there are prostitution womanfs behind glass door, with red lights above them... and its all LEGAL ( so people who are out of sex to long :p ) its great to walk around in day time, just to see people going in, looking for good looking girls ( there are really some girls, that look like models... but some of them are well just not that good looking... yeah like that ) , or to feel the special atmosphere there is!!!!

Canal houses

Amsterdam has a lot of canals and next to the canals are the Canal houses ( duh...) this houses are mostly around 400-300 years old, and are almost never the same. different colours, different roofs.. the houses are pretty expensive ( starts from around a million to buy ) to see an inside of the houses, and more info about it please look here (http://www.bmz.amsterdam.nl/adam/uk/interior.html) . Anne frank also lived in a canal house!!! once a year there is a Monumental day in the Netherlands and around 600 old historical houses are open for visit.. also in Amsterdam( 10-11 September)

Cool, Dave! Those are very interesting pictures of your country. I love seeing pictures of different coutries, thanks so much for sharing them.

I would love to visit the museums, seems like a great experience.
I heard about those cafes, but actually seeing inside is pretty strange. They seem to be well-equiped, though.
