Krimpen aan den IJssel, Summer in the countryside suburbs of Rotterdam

Idyllic impoverishment in summery Krimpen aan den IJssel - The relaxing atmosphere of a Rotterdam suburb.

This used to be my first thread ever, (This is a repost of a dutch subforum post) With some old summer photos from 2009.

After seeing all the threads of the "Big World" around here I thought it would be a nice idea to post something from my area, Krimpen aan den IJssel "the green suburb close to the city centre but with a countryside character" Which will reluctantly be absorbed by Rotterdam.

In the many waterways around here, are living some rough, but relaxed people in crappy houseboats or just old (cargo)boats. This is actaully a part of the Port of Rotterdam and a very industrial "Town", specialised in making boats and yachts for rich people like Steven Spielberg.
