Roy took us on a historical tour of Maastricht city, encompassing Helpoort which is the only city gate reamining in Maastricht & the oldest standing in Maastricht which served as a fortification for the southern front of the citys fortifications.
We also did a lovely walk around the green belt area of the city which emcompassed a little animal park as well as the Bear pit, which is now an art feature. We also pasted a statue of one of the 3 muskateers who was born & lived in Maastricht.
We ended our walk at an Irish pub to have a snack & a beer. Sadly this is when I left the group to make a dash for the train back to amsterdam. Roy very kindly led the way to the bridge out of the old part of town.
We met a large crowd of VT'ers at the Brasserie at the station. I ordered a chicken pie which came with salad & had everyones eyes watching me wade through this plate of hot food when the others ate bread rolls - hey it pays to be different!!
I bought along my disposable camera & forgot to press the flash in some instances at the brasserie so pics did not come out very clearly.
I handed out some london photo's & hope everyone managed to get a hello from me - if not I'll mail you one!!
