The bar of the impromptu flamenco night.
I'm counting on all of my facebook friends to point out to me if I'm being dull, OK?  There's only one person I know who's all that interested in the real Minutae of my life, and given that he's perfectly capable of stopping me mid flow to ask me how to spell my school or of interrogating me for clear five minutes about where I'm storing my kitchen junk, we'd probably best not encourage him.

I'm finally in Utrecht.  Utrecht - completely in line with my reccie here in July - continues to be the most ramdom city I've visited in my whole life.  My visit here conincided with the opening day of the cultural season, with the practical upshot that having spent the day listening to Dutch hip hop and salsa bands, I spent my evening listening to flamenco in a Spanish speaking Tapas bar.
I took this on my reccie in July. Looks pretty promising...
  my Spanish is a hell of a lot better than my Dutch - which currently extends to ordering coffee, truth to tell - so that is pretty ace.  And never happened in the two summers I lived in Spain.  I chatted to total strangfers, clapped till my hands were sore, and pretended to know the words to all sorts of songs.  I've had a great night.

Which is just as well, because no-one in the hostel is at all chatty.  Am I too old?  Am I too female?  Are the youth of today too attached to their IPods?  I've been in friendlier travel lodges.  Frequently. 

Ho hum. 

Photos to follow - damned if I can figure out where ther USB on this thing is.

Muchos Besos,

Utrecht Hostels review
B and B Utrecht is a hostel just outside of the main town centre in Utrecht. The accomodation, physically speaking, was OK. The bathrooms were damp,… read entire review
