ICLS 2008

I'm over in the Netherlands (first timer) and enjoying my time in Utrecht. The technical university is here, about a 40 minute train ride south from Amsterdam. Currently, the mayor of the city is offering a welcome.

First impressions of the Dutch are good ones. Wonderful coffee, pleasant and patient people who are tall and striking. My folks say that I have some Dutch heritage, but I don't know of any Van [somethings] in my family tree. I'll need to look more into that.
