I did some further exploring of Maastricht today. It was a dreary day, cold and rainy. But we braved the weather and explored the city. I'd guess we walked about 5-6 miles. You can walk just about anywhere of importance in under 25 minutes, to get to the outskirts which are more residential it takes about 30-35 minutes. But then again the city seems to grow everyday as we venture further and further out so give me a week and those times may have jumped a bit. Today was nice I went out with a couple friends in my group, Ryan and Brandon are from Minnesota and go to school in Fargo,ND, and there accents doon't lie. They are both cool. And Nicole from Missouri (who despite asking far too many questions that none of us know the answers to) is also very nice.
I fear I am getting sick, my throat has been scratchy all day and spending the afternoon in the cold did not help
During our walk today we stumbled onto a parade. With my limited understanding of Dutch I believe a new "prince" was elected for the Karnival Festival which takes place at the end of February. Apparently it gets pretty crazy. I have been told it is Mardi Gras X 10!!! So we will see.....perhaps some interesting stories and pictures to share.
Take Care I hope everyone checks out my new travelogue!!!
