    I spent pretty much the entire day riding my bicycle around the city of Rotterdam, enjoying the sun, and stopping every now and then to eat or drink something.

    I got the idea to take some pics with my phone. Here goes.

    Maasboulevard, cool flag thingies

    Willems Bridge & the White House (once the highest building in Europe)

    Hotel New York & Euro-mast in the background.

    Hotel New York used to be the cruise terminal for the cruise ships that sailed between New York and Rotterdam.

    Shot from the Erasmus Bridge

    Another one, facing the south side. Most of the tall buildings aren't even 5 years old. They're building a lot of shit here lately.

    [​IMG]
    The building on the left is an old warehouse turned into student housing. The big tower is a new high-end apartment building called "New Orleans"

    [​IMG]
    Back to the river, facing the North. This used to be a port that was actually used, but they left the cranes there for decoration. Some of them are converted into restaurants.

    Imagine how nice it would be to have big cities in the US without certain elements. Everything beautiful, peaceful, clean...
