What I saw was carnage, despair and a dollar based religion. I saw a macro-economic situation that was derived from economic depressions in regions of the world and maximized by individual entrepreneurs. That specific 12 hours makes me no expert but I got a lot farther than most, if not all journalists, who go there for a story. Bring a camera into the district and the girls will scatter. Moments later “someone” will want to speak to you about “the box (camera)” in your hand. The focus of my time in the district was not the “professionals” as in the girls who are regulated by the Swiss Government and city ordinances of Geneva. These are the girls who have medical cards, are licensed and pay taxes. Those girls have a plan. Some are there to make money and some are there to enjoy themselves as they stated to me. In my opinion, all are there for the money and they have limited time inside this district because it “wears you down” and has an effect on your head. It also wears on your body as the pace extracts its toll over a short period of time. A woman can only take so much of a physical pounding before her body starts to break down.
