Alexandrium shopping centre is one of the most well known indoor shopping centres of Rotterdam. Most of us locals still call it the ‘Oosterhof’, which was the original name of the first part of the shopping centre. As it expanded with the second and third part, the name changed to Alexandrium. It is really close to my house and I do feel kind of spoiled sometimes with all of the shops so close to home. There are also many places in Alexandrium where you can get something to eat. One of my favorite new spots is Frooters, a frozen yoghurt and juice bar. I fell in love with frozen yoghurt in New York City and ever since I am always on the lookout for new spots that sell it near me. Lees verder
Recently I learned about this beautiful and a bit bizarre looking fruit called Dragonfruit or Pitaya. It is the fruit of several cactus species. They can weigh anywhere from 150 to 600 grams. On the outside it is a bright pink with green tips on the leaves or scales. On the inside it is white (there is a pink species as well) with a massive amount of black seeds.
