#scil11 – One day | Two cities

Today was our rest day and we each went in different directions. I spent the morning in Delft and the afternoon in Rotterdam. Two very different places. Delft is reminiscent of what Amsterdam must have looked like and Rotterdam, after being decimated in the war, is now a modern, bustling harbour city.

And then to Rotterdam. I took the architects tour and walked my feet off.

This is the Rotterdam Library, looks a little like the Pompidou Centre, in yellow.

I think all of The Netherlands were in Rotterdam today.

  1. Anne,
    Thanks for sharing all the beauty you witnessed today! It interesting to note that given the ‘either or choice’ of a visit, I would choose Delft. The visual experience was so, so comforting!
    Thanks again!
