Flag of Netherlands  , Utrecht,
Saturday, September 12, 2009

I went to Utrecht last weekend.  Utrecht is a city in the Netherlands that takes about 30 minutes by train from Leiden.  (btw, I'm loving the train system here - why doesn't california and every else in the US have such great public transportation??).  Utrecht reminded me of a larger Leiden.  They have a University & canals & more people than Leiden.  We, for the most part, just walked around.  It was a beautiful day.  I also a got a sandwich from a restaurant which reminded me of the Morty's Chicken BLT, which made me very happy (I missi Morty's).  We did do one thing, which I found very cool - we climbed Domtoren Tower, a very old bell tower that used to be connected a church.  It's about 7 euros and you get a tour of it, but you have to be willing to climb about 500 very scary stairs.  This was harder than I thought it was going to be!  The view at the top is worth it though!
