A photo from... Rotterdam

I hired a bike from my hotel (The Student Hotel) during my time in Rotterdam for World Port Days. We stopped near Bierhaven and walked around some open boats and listened to some shanty songs and then went back to our bikes.

When I did I saw this guy hanging out on the lock of my bike, and with the sun shining on him, he really didn't want to leave.

I hope his broken wing doesn't stop him flying.
