Lenora and I left Amsterdam this morning and 30 minutes later after a comfortable train ride found ourselves in Utrecht - a very nice city of about 300,000 (about Ottawa size). Still rainy but sunny breaks here and there. We walked a lot today - about 30 mins into the town centre from our hotel -- did that there and back twice. Hopefully it will balance out the food and drink! We plan to do some touring here tomorrow - boat cruise of the old canal here in this medieval city and some walking about. My colleague, Karla, and I register for the conference tomorrow evening and then on Thurs to Sat it will be conference mode with a few breaks. I've attached a few early pics of Utrecht - for sure there will be many more tomorrow after the old canal ride. After that the blog may take a rest until we are in Hungary. Off to bed now - it is11:40 pm here. If you happen to log you can leave a message - either public or private - we'd love to hear from you.
