No less that 80 times Amsterdam ferrymen and women go up and down the IJ canal each shift. Each day, each week. 80 times the same 5 minute ride. 40 times the same view on the quay.
A few meters above the passenger deck, they look down on the cargo disembarking their vessel. A couple of minutes when docked allow for a moment of woolgathering. When the buzzer sounds, the mesmerizing is over and a new crossing is about to begin.
