A little weekend in Rotterdam

Life is good when once in a while you can do something spontaneous, so very last minute we decided to book a hotel and go on a little trip to Rotterdam. The whole way over there it rained but once we arrived at the hotel the sky cleared up, the sun came out and we were ready to start exploring this new-to-us city. First we went to the Katendrecht area where we had a drink at Posse and went to the Fenix Food Factory, an honest food market in an old warehouse, we walked back to the centre by the Iconic Hotel New York, and the Holland - Amerika lijn, the place where people left by boat to find their luck in New York. After we did some speed shopping in the centre, before the shops closed for the evening. We had dinner at 'Uit je Eigen Stad' (From your own city), an urban farm, restaurant and social entreprise that encourages people to deal consciously with our food (again) as consumers and producers. After a good night rest we went to see the new Markthal (brand new) and the cubic houses, which are very weird. The basic idea for the houses - to build on columns so that the space under the buildings can remain public - was inspired by Le Corbusier. After we went to 'Ontbijtbar', a collaboration project of Rotterdam’s best breakfast (ingredient) suppliers and had very yummie American style blueberry pancakes, An English full bfst and homemade granola.
See you soon Rotterdam, because we haven't seen everything yet!
