My hotel room looks very nice. Unfortunately it faces West so that its windows receive direct sunlight until about 9:30 pm. Fine, I'll just open some windows. DUH. Only 1 (ONE) tiny tilting window. There is a refrigerator in the room, and that only heats the place up more. The ceiling fan stirs the air into an unbearable quagmire of heat.
Then I head out to check out the famous Corner of Holland, with the Maas forming one side and the North Sea forming the other.
|What are they doing?|
|I just don't get it!|
|What it looks like looking down from where they are sitting|
|There must be something important that I'm just not getting.|
OK, the pictures so far have been a little misleading. But only a little. If one goes to the very corner, this is what it looks like. The river on the left with industry and Rotterdam harbour on the other side of the Maas and a beach on the right. But all these people in the first pictures staring at the industry were nowhere near the beach!
Since my room is way too hot, I spend all evening sitting in a restaurant close to the beach, working on my translations, drinking Rose, and eating mussels (a harsh fate, I know).
