We went shopping a few nights ago on the street in Pattaya. While walking around we took a turn down a soi (side street). Suddenly, it wasn't clothes or shoes or hats for sale.....it was women for sale.
It's amazing what happened when I walked into the Red Light District for the first time....when I really saw the horror close up. Suddenly I didn't react how I expected to react. It's as if my body took over, involuntarily, to protect and preserve me. I just SHUT DOWN. Mentally and emotionally it's as if someone flipped a switch. I just went NUMB.
Here's a glimpse of what we saw that night. Take note that this is just ONE little side street, and that it wasn't even in the worst area. Rusty interviewed me to capture some of the raw emotion I was feeling in response to what we experienced...
(*note - you may want to make the video full screen so that you can really see everything... we only have a little bit of footage and it may be hard to see because it goes by quickly.)
