A walk through scenic Rotterdam, the Netherlands, alongside river Maas and to park Schoonoord

This afternoon I made a walk nearby where I live. First alongside river Maas and Erasmus Bridge, then via an older part of Rotterdam, called Scheepvaartkwartier, to a very nice little park, called Schoonoord, where an old colleague of mine,Hans Slappendel lives with Annette.
I put some effort in the comments, I hope it will be helpful to get a rough idea on the beauty of my city, where I was born and lived a major part of my life. Enjoy

Tax museum situated at Parklaan. Difference between Rotterdam and Amsterdam: Amsterdam has the Sex nuseum, while Rotterdam has the Tax museum. This more or less reflects the difference between this two cities. (hihi) Luckily the majority of tourists head therefore to Amsterdam.
