Visiting for a few days to attend the High Resolution X-ray Spectroscopy: Past, Present, and Future meeting.
If you're so inclined, you can have a look at the talk I gave at the meeting [pptx or pdf].
Incidentally, I've never seen a city with so many bicycles.
The entrance to the meeting, at the University.
The meeting room was pretty amazing, with tapestries and an organ.
...and a statue of an owl.
The house where Roentgen, the discoverer of X-rays, lived.
The Dom Tower, right outside the meeting building.
A mysterious snake logo, associated with the Dom Tower.
A Belgian bar, a few blocks from the meeting. There were berries in my stew.
We took a tour of the city...
...that included an old church courtyard.
A reception at the city hall -- real lit candles in the chandeliers.
Utrecht street view.
Anarchist bar. No ice...but all profits to charity.
The Court Hotel.
And the view out my window.
Creamsicle espresso set.
Nice looking Thai restaurant and disappointed astronomers who didn't make a reservation.
An entire store dedicated to Johan Cruyff (this floor was set up to look like a locker room).
The Tulip Room
at the Sunhead, and the view out its window.
Maurice and Liz.
