A sniff of architecture, sculpture parade, harbour cruise, cuisine
I should like to propose a Powwow in Rotterdam.
You may like a whiff or sniff of architecture, a brief stroll along unique modern sculptures, a harbour cruise, and to treat yourself to good cuisine on a spectacular location: http://www.montevideorotterdam.nl/
Date: Saturday 12th January, 2008
Time: 13:30 hours
Departure: 14:15 hours
Point of assembly: Near Central Station
Exact description of location, see : http://picasaweb.google.com/a.stufkens/PowwowRotterdam?authkey=CB0gB0aUL6o
I recommend coming by train because the proposed point of assembly is just opposite the railway station and it will do away with the fuss of seeking your way in the city and parking. Besides, this is where I propose to start the excursion.
Do not let the construction mess around the station shock you. Like Phoenix the old station will rise again but then in an awesome way. See: http://www.benthemcrouwel.nl/portal_presentation/transport/rotterdam-cs
The stroll along the sculptures to the place of embarkment should take less than an hour.
The harbour cruise operator sees to an efficient and well informed boating experience with a modern feel: http://www.spido.nl/default-menu.aspx?TaalID=2
Costs: € 9.-
Departure: Sa. at 15.:30 hours
The place where I propose to have dinner has a pleasant and spacious atmosphere situated near the former headquarters of the Holland – America Line, where thousands of emigrants left for America in the fifties and sixties.
The place: http://www.humphreys.nl/wm.cgi?keywords=;id=71
For those who never participated in a powwow before:
The practice is that each participant pays for his/her own consumption.
Dinner is usually booked as a group dinner which results in one bill to be paid jointly.
Estimated costs, including 3 or 4 drinks: € 30.-
It would be very pleasant if each one would pay the exact amount of consumption without the need for change because the organizer has not the facilities of a professional cashier.
It seems that “Humphrey’s Restaurant” is fully crowded on Saturdays and that bookings should be done 2-3 weeks in advance.
So, indicate your definite interest not later than 22nd December 2007.
11-01-2008: I have booked for 15 . Unfortunately the deadline has now been reached.
