Amsterdam's Red Light District: Bloedstraat

The infamous Bloedstraat (Blood Street) is said to be named after blood used to run down the street during executions at Nieuwmarkt. Nowadays it is more known for the blue lights indicating that most of the working "girls" are not girls at all! The windows in the above picture though are shared so unsuspecting visitors may or may not get a surprise.
