We then took the train to Utrecht from Amsterdam and arrived at our hotel for the night....so thankful to have a hot shower and warm bed. We slept long and hard.....and now we are heading into Germany this afternoon from Utrecht. Our first stop will be Cologne, which we visited briefly last year but we will be staying the night this time and will have more time to explore that HUGE cathedral
BACK IN UTRECHT:
Right now we are sitting in an Internet cafe in Utrecht under the streets right beside the canal....its so cool!!! There are little shops and businesses operating below street level...!!!
What a beautfiul city, and The Dom was very impressive.....learned lots about it on a little tour inside the main church. A lot of the churches in Netherlands, and I assume in Germany, went through a lot during the Reformation so many aspects of the original churches were destroyed or reconstructed in a Protestant fashion.
In general, though, the city is beautiful and relaxing with another day sunshine here, we are crossing our fingers that it stays with us as we head into Germany.
(This computer won't let me put pics on either, so maybe tonight from Cologne, I will get some on finally....)
