Dutch Holiday 2016

Home > Saturday 4th

< Home Sunday 5th >

Those of us arriving early in the afternoon, headed out to the Rotterdam Tram Museum for a visit. We were greeted and shown around by one of the guides, who took us through the displays showing how the system had developed. Inevitably during WW2 the system received some damage inflicted, rather unfortunately, by us. We had a trip around the city system on a historic tram running over parts of the system not in everyday use.

For dinner in the evening we discovered an Argentinian Steak House down a side street just across from the hotel. We might have had our differences with the Argentinians over the years, but boy they don't half know how to cook a steak! It was a wonderful meal to round off the day.
