July 19 – sun, bikes & Rotterdam

When Siebe first suggested that we bike to Rotterdam, I know a few of us thought ‘yea right!’ but we were all so glad we did!! It was a beautiful bike ride there, which took about an hour through fields and over canals and down some cobblestone streets of a few small towns in between. When we got there we discovered that one of the buildings we were most looking forward to seeing, the Kunsthal (designed by OMA) was closed for reconstruction. We were pretty disappointed but rode on to the Schouwburgplein designed by West8. We found some nice lounge benches to relax on in the square and a few of us made our debut appearance in an impromptu music video! By the time we biked back to Delft we were all ready for some ice cream and a nap!
