Day 4 – Rotterdam

Prior to leaving Munich this morning, I took one last stroll through the quiet morning streets. It really is a pleasant city. Train travel is a greatly underappreciated form of travel in the United States. The ICE system provides an efficient, smooth, and quiet way to move between cities and countries. Using a series of these trains, we shifted our base of operations from Munich to Rotterdam. After checking into the hotel, we went out for a walking food tour to try traditional Dutch foods and learn about the history of Rotterdam. Apparently the Dutch are very into fried foods, because it seemed like everything we were eating was fried- Poffertjes, Krokketen, etc. At least the cheese wasn’t fried?
