One of the curiosities you can find in the streets of downtown Rotterdam
One of the parks in the commercial area of Lijnbaankwartier
The idea is simple: show people that they can combine tall buildings and shops with green areas and nature.
Kim Heinen - from Rotterdam Marketing - took us to meet what would be our guide, a Dutch girl and architecture student who spoke such perfect English that made us doubt her origin. Since I'm bad for names and I didn't write it down, I must admit that I don't remember what it was called. Sorry!
It had been raining part of the morning but the Sun managed to break through to illuminate the green of the lawn that covered the first square of our itinerary: a small public park behind one of the busiest shopping streets.
