A photo report of the citywalk with our friends (Marieke, Marleen, Mick, Stefan and 'baby' Gandi) in Rotterdam last Sunday.
Slow start with coffee & chocolate cake in our 'Parisian' frontyard.
While we drove to Rotterdam, dark clouds appeared in front of us.
As soon as we arrived it started pooring. So we ran to shelter from the heavy rainstorm and had a drink at Aloha, not on the terrace as we planned...
After a while the heavy rain stopped and we decided to get started; citywalk with umbrella!
We crossed the river Maas via the Willemsbrug and walked accros the Noordereiland. (in the meantime our shoes were soaked!)
But hey, no complains about the weather guys.
We skipped the visit to Hotel New York and continued our walk via the Erasmus bridge to have lunch. When we arrived at Bazar, we even could sit outside on the terrace.
We had lentil soup (always) and lots of lovely food and after coffee we crossed the street to have a look at the cool vintage collection at Episode. I found an amazing kaftan dress from Thailand, didn't like the huge butterfly sleeves, but bought it anyway. Marleen found herself a cool nineties house blouse and the sun arrived!
En route to the Museumpark and the Maastunnel building. Along the quays of the Maas we walked back to the parking.
The 100 meter running track on the Maasboulevard was challenging. For me it was the first time to run in a kaftan and it was fun, but I didn't win... (despite the false start)
We had such a fun afternoon together!
