day in Rotterdam
There was partying again last night until about 5 am. It’s crazy how noisy it is from 3-5 am!
We got our tired butts out of bed and headed out for breakfast before taking the train to Rotterdam.
Most of Rotterdam was bombed in WWII so there are very few historic buildings. It is a city of new and interesting architecture. Some works some is just odd. The city hall was not bombed and the nazis used it as headquarters. There are weapon marks in the side of it from when the Canadian soldiers shot at it to free the city. Yea Canada!
We did a free walking tour and saw many of the sites. There is a lot of art and street art around the city. Rotterdam is the second busiest port in the world so we also spent some time around the maritime museum.
After the tour we went through the cube house museum. I’m glad I saw the inside of a cube house but at the same time it kind of ruined the mystique.
Finally we stopped for poffertjes (my fav) and waffles. I watched them make the poffertjes so I can start my own business.
James and I rode the sky view Ferris wheel thing. It was ok
After exploring Rotterdam we took the train back to Delft. We really enjoy having Delft as our home base. It’s quaint and we know our way around now. If only we could get some sleep!
We tried to do laundry this evening in our suite...the machine is smarter than us.
