I like old buildings, churches, and temples. Utrecht is one place with so much history. The first time I was here was in 2000. Since the city is considered to be the central location for the Netherlands, it makes a perfect gathering place from people all over the country. I was here on my second vacation to the Netherlands and also to check out Leiden University for my graduate study. My friends surprised me with a group gathering from a chat room in IRC (those were the old days) and we all met at Stair Way to Heaven. Then we all walked to a pancake restaurant along the canal and had a great time eating and chatting. Afterward it was group pictures by the old clock tower. That was then in May of 2000 and this is now.
