"We spent as much money as we could, and got as little for it as people could make up their minds to give us. We were always more or less miserable, and most of our acquaintance were in the same condition. There was a gay fiction among us that we were constantly enjoying ourselves, and a skeleton truth that we never did. To the best of my belief, our case was in the last aspect a rather common one."
- Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
On Saturday we took our bikes and caught the ferry across to the flea market Noordermarkt where riffled through a pile of dust. Unfortunately there wasn’t much treasure to be found but the factories holding the markets made for some nice viewing.
