But it’s all for a good cause => that being the increasing of pay for the hard-working rubbish collectors who have already been on strike for a week. I kinda like the mounds of black and blue rubbish bags, scraps of newspaper, greaseproof burger wrappers, discarded McDonald’s cups and swirling, twirling miscellany caught in small tornadoes caused by the thousands of rushing commuters and bewildered tourists at the Amsterdam Central Railway Station. It’s a good reminder of how much crap we actually throw away.
