Project 365 - Day 15

I had an interview with a recruitment agency this morning, so I woke up early and took the recently extended metro into Rotterdam (The Hague has no metro system; but Rotterdam's had one since the 70s. Last year, their E line was extended to The Hague Central Station). It turned out the agency's office is situated on the right bank of the river Meuse, and afforded a good view of the 1996 Erasmusbrug, which is referred to locally as 'De Zwaan' (i.e., the swan). It's one of the best known bridges in The Netherlands, mainly because shortly after its opening, it had to be closed down again for modification: its original design caused it to start swaying in a combination of wind (force 6 on the Beaufort scale) and rain.

As to my interview, the recruiter told me she would get back to me this afternoon (she was going to meet with her client after I left), but she hasn' I think I may have had a wasted journey.
