Saturday March 08, 2014 Utrecht Walking Tour

Today the students arrived in Utrecht and we had our first walking tour, an amble through the center of town, past the Roman wall markers, through the Dom Cathedral cloister garden, to the defense canal where the city wall once stood, and back to the Oudegraacht, the old canal.

It was sunny and getting warm, people were everywhere walking, cycling, picnicking, singing in chorus and kids climbing trees–spring is really here, and after our acrtic winter, it felt like summer to us.

Sunday night we meet again for a Polder lecture, and to prepare for our first touring week.
