Maastricht Tour and shopping

Maastricht, Netherlands

Got up early today, and saw much of this wonderful city...Liz led the walking tour this morning, we visited the site where the first bridge was built by the romans across the Maas (or the Muese), we saw several churches that were built in the 11th century...in addition, we saw the original city wall. Very cool.

Then, the shopping...this city has, by far, the best shopping I've ever seen. And, we saw it all. And, even though we visited every shoe store (there are hundreds), Liz didn't find any boots she loved, although I can tell you, she tried. Still, the shopping was impressive. Their local market was today, and many of these villagers must sew...probably 20% of the booths were selling fabric, notions, etc.

Had a great dinner tonight at a local seafood spot...Stu invited his friend Shey Wiley, we had a blast. We're leaving in the morning for Brussels, we'll give everyone a shout from there...for now, Happy Thanksgiving!
