Kibitzer's Corner

  offramp: Rotterdam is the biggest port in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. It is not a very inviting place for an étranger - lots of concrete. I suppose it was heavily bombed in the war.
Apr-28-05  cade: There are lots of dutch cities in the database.

Apr-28-05  nikolaas: <offramp>< Rotterdam is the biggest port in Europe and one of the biggest in the world.> It should be noted that, although Rotterdam's the largest port in Europe, it's position is not the best. The port of Antwerp is more to the center of the country (and Europe) than Rotterdam. The duch government, however, does wath it can to hamper the growth of Antwerp. They don't let the Schelde be baggered, and they keep a very important railway, the so called IJzeren Rijn, closed.

Rotterdam is niet te filmen
De beelden wisselen te snel
Rotterdam heeft geen verleden
en geen enkele trapgevèl

Rotterdam is niet romantisch
heeft geen tijd voor flauwekul
is niet vatbaar voor suggesties
luistert niet naar slap gelul

't Is niet cameragevoelig
lijkt niet mooier dan het is
Het ligt vierkant hoog en hoekig
gekanteld in het tegenlicht

Rotterdam is geen illusie
door de camera gewekt
Rotterdam is niet te filmen
Rotterdam is vééls te ècht
