Fifty years is a long career in any field. Especially when you work with your twin sister. So Louise and Martine Fokkens are calling it quits, now that they're unquestionably the longest-working prostitutes in Amsterdam's Red Light District.
The Fokkens sisters are seventy years old -- and they estimate a combined total of three-hundred-and-fifty-five thousand clients. They've documented their experiences in a new book called The Ladies of Amsterdam and a movie titled Meet the Fokkens.
They both speak with Carol about their careers, why they are hanging it up and what the future holds.
