Ehem...
This was the meetup I almost not went to :) I had being asked to show up but found out a wedding (not mine) I had been invited to was scheduled for the very same day. Later it turned out that the wedding actually took place the day before. My schedule was wrong. :) Which resulted in a short night - but also gave me the opportunity to actually go to Leiden. Only drawback was that I had an appointment on Sunday morning, too. Which meant I left Leiden at 3:00 am Sunday morning and skipped the night. Not something I am doing regulary any longer... :D

Anyway, it was great I went there. Thanks, Anna :) I arrived two hours early which gave me the opportunity of taking some pics in the city before all hell broke loose ;) I collected all city pics here in the first entry.
Leiden comes with... a huuuge windmill! Actually a mill museum ("de Valk").
For the TB shots navigate to the second entry.

CU guys :)

Oops, perhaps I should at least write some lines about the meetup itself :D But only some lines... since others have already written a lot.
After having met at the central station (...late of course, like at every meetup) we started for a walk through beuatiful Leiden. Anna was our guide and she did a great job. I will definitely return to Leiden someday. A beautiful city with canals and the typical Dutch architecture I like. Including: windmills :) First stop was at a Tapas bar. Later we went to café Einstein and had a wonderful dinner there. Followed by a short dressing break and another walk finally leading us to the Tapas place again - for partying. As mentioned before I had to quit here. Since I had drunk huge ammounts of coke driving back was easier than I had expected. Anyway, next time I'll have to stay overnight!
