Haarlem & Rotterdam

We are continuing our journey here in the Netherlands...
so far we have managed to find an apartment in the city and start looking for work; we are not really vacationing but we do find the time to do a bit sightseeing. It's such a great feeling to take a train or a bus to someplace you've never been, get out of the central station to find a whole new place, with a completely different vibe.
We visited Haalrem last week (many places in NY are named after dutch cities- such as Harlem and Brooklyn) which is a very picturesque small town just 20 minutes from Amsterdam, and unlike the image of its NY counterpart, seems quite rich as well...
today we went to Rotterdam; the train ticket was insanely expensive but the trip was worth it, Rotterdam is a very modern city, with numerous interesting architectural buildings and Europe's biggest harbor!
we just loved walking on the boardwalk, sitting in the sun, watching the boats go by...
