Rotterdam - Style discovery.

Rotterdam - Style discovery. Willie unearths an art deco barber.

Day off in Rotterdam. Very pleasant, despite bizarre sleeping patterns. Went for a long walk on the islands in the port area of the city and discovered the extraordinary "Hotel New York" - the former HQ of the Holland-America shipping line, responsible for much of the transporting of migrants to the US in the early part of this century. Now its a hotel, and an art deco event. Its just the most beautiful place, with a fabulous restaurant, barbers shop, great rooms. Loved it. Stayed all afternoon. Guy Fawkes and not a single banger is heard.
