Rotterdam Friday Afternoon Stroll with Jessica

After working hours, we took the train from The Hague to see Rotterdam. Well, Jessica's new to this country so we looked around for some unique stuff and just to see the city before she goes back to Italy. We werelucky as it was not rainy and we evengot a good amountof sun with us in an after-five Netherlands.
Rotterdam ( /ˈrɒtərdæm/; Dutch [ˌrɔtərˈdɑm] ( listen)) is the second-largest city in the Netherlands and the largest port in the world. Starting as a dam on the Rotte river, Rotterdam has grown into a major international commercial centre. Its strategic location at the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta on the North Sea and at the heart of a massive rail, road, air and inland waterway distribution system extending throughout Europe means that Rotterdam is often called the Gateway to Europe. -wikipedia
Typical Dutch view, tons of bikes...
We liked this statue....
...so we tried to imitate his positio/posture.
Jessica liked this tree....
and wanted to have a phot where the tree's a background...
Here comes the naughty Santa...
This place is a lovely garden...
We reached the port...
with the cruiseshio behind...
Obviously it was not the ideal pair of shoes for the day... but i was from work!
more port photos
and more together
trying to ignore the aching feet...

Old Dutch sailing ship...

I like the tree too. I can imagine myself on the branch, with a good book. I used to do that when I was small! Ah, memories... ^^

The naughty Santa. Can't help but remind me of one thing, that thing he was holding. LOL
