Dutch Design - Day 13 - Museum Boijmans van Beuningen "This train is headed for Brussels"

Today, the groep split up to do their own thing. A few people went shopping, some went back to Amsterdam right away.

I stayed with a small group of 4 with Rachael, Kenneth, and Christine to check out more of Rotterdam. We went to the Boijmans van Beuningen and we found so many design things in the exhibits and their design collection. Their "Handmade" exhibit was extraordinary and would be really inspirational for a separate film just for that section of the museum.

 After the museum we walked along the area towards the Maas river to pass by the Erasmusbrug. We went by this Italian ice truck on the way and had a good long stop to just relax and sit down and  EAT SOME ICE CREAM YES.

We had some issues regarding getting tickets and also just boarding the train only a few seconds before it started to leave the station. This was stressful for us dealing with issues about paying for the tickets and also running to the train platform to make it. The conductor was pretty funny though joking about how the train we boarded was heading to Brussels.

Food Notes
-the Italiaans Ijs truck by the Eramusbrug is so refreshing!
