Rotterdam (1) – Along Nieuwe Maas

Upon our arrival in Rotterdam, we were met with a downpour of rain that lasted about an hour.  We had thoughts of turning around and catching the next train back to Amsterdam.  However, with a $10.00 all day metro pass, we didn’t think we had much to lose if we remained inside trams all day.  It was a good thing we persevered.  As you can see from these photos, it was a heavy overcast day and it remained that way until our journey home 12 hours later…and it never rained again.

We took a stroll across Willemsbrug, a bridge over Nieuwe Maas that connects to Noordereiland.
