Rotterdam ... just a train ride away

I'd been getting serious flack from my co-worker for not visiting his 'city' of Rotterdam (about 45 minutes away). So, we decided to check out the largest port town in Europe for the International Film Festival. Turns out, Rotterdam is cool. Unfortunately it was mostly destroyed by bombs in the German invasion of 1940, but it's now a unique modern city with an appreciation for design and modern architecture. It was an action packed day trip, beginning with a Thai film that apparently wasn't edited (1 hour too long), crazy boat ride to the New York hotel (huge ships would sail off to America from here), lunch with my co-worker and his wife, walking tour and a pretty good Russian film to end the day. Here's pics.
