A long weekend in Maastricht

We just spent a long weekend in the capital city of the Dutch Limburg, and I also took a few pictures while walking around, shopping, and eating :) The weather was not too good (barely above zero degrees and dense fog on Saturday, instead of the foreseen sunshine…), but that did not stop us from having a really nice time. I think we both agree that the coolest thing in the city is a 13th century Dominican church which is now renovated and converted into a really pretty bookstore. Clio – as always – looked up the best places for breakfast, coffee, lunch, and dinner weeks (ok, maybe days) in advance, so all our meals and drinks were delicious and very satisfying. Just look at the last picture, who could say no to a Ciabatta like that?!? (I should really start running/cycling again, because working, sitting 10 hours a week on my Dutch evening course, playing on the PS3, or getting my ass kicked in Yahtzee does not burn enough calories.)
