After the Party

After the party, is the mess; and since this was a street party much of the mess is in the street. There were lots of these empty fireworks shells around my neighbourhood today.

There were also drifts of debris from the fireworks piled up in drifts by various intersections, it’s in the middle of the intersections that groups gather to let off the fireworks.

Of course with the whole city having a party together – including the thousands of people who come to Amsterdam to join in – there are a lot of empty bottles afterwards. They’re piled up next to the glass recycling bin, which probably hit full capacity at about 9am yesterday morning.
