Exploring Rotterdam on a lazy Sunday afternoon

Hello everyone! 😀 Did you all have a nice Sunday? I sure did!

Sunday afternoon I had a great time spending with my good singer/ song writer friend of mine, Vangelis (please visit and like his Facebook page to give him some love) in the city of Rotterdam. We met up at the Central Station and walked to a fancy looking restaurant, La Buvette, where live music was being performed by a promising Dutch Jazz singer/ song writer Maya Christina accompanied with her band. The atmosphere was really relaxing and cozy and the music that played was quite enjoyable. We ordered a little lunch and took some pictures and just enjoyed the comfy restaurant atmosphere.

Furthermore, (unknown to me) the jazz performance was a performance done for the North Sea Round Town that is currently going on in Rotterdam. This is an event that will be occurring this and next week where musicians will be performing for free around Rotterdam until the final night where popular musicians/ singers from all over the world (I think) will be attending. And of course that particular night must be paid for by the attendees. Or so I was told. I do not know anything about it, so I cannot really go much in detail about it…

We later walked around and my friend took me to see The Markthal that I have personally never heard of but apparently it is quite a popular building. Which rock have I been living under, lol… The Markethal was quite a huge building  with nice art of fruit and vegetables drawn on the ceiling. It was a type of market venue that had a variety of restaurants and shops inside. It was quite impressive. I do not think I have seen anything like it. Once inside my friend showed me around the building and we went into a restaurant to sip on some nice coconut cendol as we watched people walk below us and chatted away. It was a nice experience.

Anyway, I just wanted to share a little something about myself since I do not do this so often. Thank you for reading and don’t forget to also show me some love by liking and following me on my social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google Plus). Take care!
