We went to Utrecht yesterday. it was only about a twenty minute train ride from Amsterdam. i'm pleasantly surprised at how close everything is around here. a twenty minute ride from Ottawa would take you to....Kanata. and we all know there isn't much to see there. but in Utrecht we had a chance to walk around the old town, the sunken canal, the old church where the protestants went all Rambo on the Catholic statues, and had a bite at a neat little cafe where they, for some reason, gave me shot glasses of water with the coffee. Utrecht seems to be a pretty good shopping area as well, although i still have not solved the problem that i am about five clothing sizes smaller than the average Dutch woman.
