Ommoord  Outer part of town created in the sixties with mainly big flats and condo's. After having lived in Germany my parents went back to Rotterdam in 1973 and found their home in this new suburb of Rotterdam. I have had a quite happy childhood there only some dreadful years during puberty. Have lived there almost 19 years.

woonde ik in Ommoord. eerst op de Einsteinplaats en later in de Sierbloem.

Erasmiaans gymnasium (high school)  Attended this school to be taught classic Latin and Greek, quite elite and mainly a school for children of the happy few instead of the poor environment in where i grew up. Not the most happiest of times those days, but it had probably to do with my coming of age, which i found quite disturbing for several years.

Euromast  Rotterdam's highest building and still a major tourist attraction. Just a couple of corners away i was born in the sixties. Nowadays i visit this hood mainly for shopping at the Chinese grocery nearby.

One of the great sight seeings of the With its 185 metres it's the highest tower open for public in The You can dine and drink high up there, or simply enjoy the amazing view.

Hofplein  Important traffic point in the inner center. My oldest memories of Rotterdam go back to this place, because as a kid i slept in the Hilton Hotel overlooking the Hofplein. Place can be very crowded during summer festivals, Rotterdam marathon's and with Dutch soccer success.

Skyline of Rotterdam  The center was completely bombed by the Nazi's in 1940 and the city was rebuild  until today. Due to his many high offices and condo's also named as Manhattan aan de Maas (name of the river runs through Rotterdam)
