So my business sent me to Rotterdam for a week. At first I was bumbed to leave my family and all, especially for a work trip, but once I landed, I really liked it here. This city is pretty insane. I am staying in this cutting edge apartment building new construction apartment. It's really cool. The city itself is really instead sting and has an interesting mix of architecture, with the old, communist block style housing and cutting edge architure. The people have also been fantastic here. The knowledge here is amazing and refreshing. I pretty much did what I always do on business, I have hit the local pub, and starting BSing with the regulars at the bar. So far, I got a free world cup holland jersey, and world cup dress thing for my wife, a tour of Rotterdam by a local, and a tour coming up on Thursday of Amsterdam. Not mentioning the free alcohol I have been drinking. (even though I have been buying rounds back myself). But I gotta say, for people that never have been, or are only thinking of going to Amsterdam, check out Rotterdam as well. This is an awesome place. Now I am waiting for Netherlands vs. Argentina! Go Netherlands. I hope they win, so I could see what it is really like to party in Europe during the world cup. My liver may die, but at least it will be fun. Btw, is it bad that I have consumed more alcohol and coffee, then food since I have been here?
