Oh, dear friends....

On the pic: Es & Axel, my friend & your humble servant :)))
admire the many new, very...
admire the many new, very modern, very interesting and impressive buildings. Because of the tragic fact that in the second World War the city centre was destroyed in a bombardment there was 'room' for a brand new centre, This city is so completely different from Amsterdam and yet so typically Dutch that I think people should pay more attention to it, Rotterdam deserves that. So go and have a good look around, see the skyscrapers, climb the Euromast, have a harbourtrip through the largest harbour of the WORLD, visit the Maritime Museum or....discover the Dutch countryside by bike starting from Rotterdam. These tours are offered by 'SPINNING WHEELS' info: 06-50988357. There are 5 different tours of 35-45 km.
Of course there is a wonderful ZOO in Rotterdam with the name BLIJDORP
my many visits to this city, which give me the opportunity to discover and to love this city, especially the architecture, because it is the City of Architecture by excellence. The archicentre offers visitors special tours and walks past examples of high-rise building by international architects as Jahn, Foster and Piano and the city also boasts modern architecture from our own Koolhaas, Quist, Klunder, Hoogstad, Bonnema, Blom en Weeber..
These are the cubic houses of Piet Blom and the building with the yellow tubes around it is the Public Library
The weirdest and most wonderful houses I have ever seen. I wanted to move in here immediately!!
There are around 40 of the Cube Houses, one is a show cube where you get an impression what it's like. There are three floors, connected by some extremely narrow steps, and the floors are the only thing that's normal. You must not be a giant, or you must wear a hard hat all the time. You must like experimenting with furniture - coz you hardly find anything that fits.
I guess you have great neighbours, all as crazy as you are. And great location in the city center!! Fotos will follow
