Here you go … one more view of Rotterdam, The Netherlands: the cube-shaped homes.

According to Rotterdam.info website, “these were designed by Piet Blom, who saw his design as a tree and the entire complex as a forest.” It seems like the interior was created to give visitors an impression of how it’s possible to live in a cube house … all right, all right, all right but  just thinking about living in there makes me dizzy. Though, I have to admit it is a neat concept.

Most recently, the Cube Houses were converted into a hostel (inexpensive lodging). You can see how it looks like now in this link . Have fun!

The natural light was not good for taking pictures but I still like this one; It shows one of the nuances of Rotterdam’s lifestyle.

I recently took this picture while walking by the Rotte River in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I spent only three days, but was glad that I had a couple free hours to look around and learn a little bit about Rotterdam, a very neat city and one of the largest ports in the world. By the way, does anybody know what type of car is this one?

I had a good time visiting Washington DC. Though it was a very hot week, I enjoyed it a lot. What a beautiful city with lots of meaningful monuments and historical buildings. But what got my attention the most were some of the gorgeous flowers at the Botanic Garden. More to come.
