Way down south in Maastricht...

This is an old Roman city (a castrum, camp or settlement, on the river Maas) still retaining a charming medieval centre. I am staying across the river in a newer part. Very pleasant and quite rural. Close to the Belgian border -- cars stream nearby back and forth into the neighbouring land... In search of Belgian beer?
Two and a half hours by train from Amsterdam, the landscape becoming ever greener and slightly hilly as we clatter southwards.
Pictures soon, or consult images on google!
The weather is very changeable -- huge drenching rain storms and then an opklaring (no need to trandlate that!) and now a bright blue sky.
