6, 10-16 August 2003

I was in Utrecht to attend the Congress at De Uithof Universitat. The oppressive heat wave continued into this week, but broke around 14 August. I stayed at the NH Centre Utrecht Hotel near Janskerk in the old town part of Utrecht. My room did not have air conditioning, but it did have an oscillating fan. Breakfasts were good and there were two good restaurants attached to the hotel. I had excellent Zeeland mussels at the restaurant facing the Janskerk bus stop.

While in Utrecht, I visited

After I learned that my post-Congress fieldtrip had been cancelled, I had to make new plans. After the Congress was over, I decided to go to Amsterdam and make a series of daytrips from there. I traveled by train from Utrecht to Amsterdam.
