“Accio Firebolt”


Normal brooms are not happening.  The Amsterdam city cleaners are using the same brooms since the city was first settled in the 1200’s.  Witch brooms, like those that recently starred in Harry Potter movies, are used every morning to sweep the streets.  The only reason I can think of for them using those old school brooms is that they must work a heck of a lot better.  

Now that I think of it, many scenes from Harry Potter have an uncanny resemblance to Amsterdam.  Especially Diagon Alley.  I deduce that J.K. Rowling had a big blowout weekend in Amsterdam, and came up with the whole Harry Potter scheme from trolling the streets while tripping.
