to get a VTer to show it to you !

We visited Leiden in June 2004...In the company of VTer Mique... We visited the University and the Rembrandt monuments and peeked into a Hofje or two ...checked out a mighty Catherdral,climbed the hill-yup you heard me -theres a hill in Leiden...strolled the shopping streets ,stopped for a drink in a canalside cafe -it was an unusually warm day. Wandered up some enticing alleyways ...took some pictures...had a nice dinner...Now Leiden has alot to offer to a visitor,but seeing it with a native Hollander
was a real highlight of our trip.(not to mention all the goodies Mique sent back with us,that we're still enjoying).... and it makes a statement as to the power a website like Virtual Tourist can have in bringing people from different cultures together in a positive way.

    Hey, I missed that hill! We drove from Leiden to France and I was amazed at the flatness of the country. Have friends in Leiden so I'll need to go back and find that hill!
