Rain, Rain, Go Away, Come Again Another Day

Please? I am not used to this inclement weather having lived in Southern California for the last 14 years. I’m not talking about some sprinkles here, some drizzling there. Two of the four days I was in Rotterdam we had sideways rainstorms. And while I came prepared with rain shell, gloves, hat, you would think I was the Wicked Witch of the West, melting away in the rain. I seriously wondered, “What do these people do here in the rain?”. Well, they still do bike.. But, they also huddle inside pizza places–so it isn’t just me who is less inclined to do a full day of walking around in stormy weather. 

The last day of my stay, the sun came out to play all day.
