City excursions and a confession

A couple weeks ago I took a mini trek to the Dutch city of Utrecht. Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands and also has one of the oldest universities in the country. My friend Vic and I didn’t have a great amount of time, but we roamed around the city and had a wonderful little meal in a cafe. It is a standard Dutch city, plenty of canals, cute dutch architecture, bikes everywhere. I have a bit of a confession. Its a good thing that I enjoy Dutch architecture so much because the towns are starting to blend together. They are all cute with canals, little bridges, brick buildings. Its kinda like all the temples in Japan. They look great, you know they are special, but there’s just so many its difficult to tell them apart after a while.

  1. I’m so glad you’ve started blogging again. On Monday I watched a video of a guy at our state office doing a presentation on Dutch culture for a diversity event. It was pretty lame by my standards (i not only showed slides, but did a cooking demo as well). Anyway, after we visit next year i should have some fodder for another presentation on international culture. Love you, Dad

    • I’m sure your presentation of Japan was awesome, along with the Okonomiyaki. And after you come out for the Team Diekman Euro Tour you’ll have another kick-ass presentation for work.
