Hallo, hier ben ik weer. I wilde je even bedanken voor het bezoek. Ik kom origineel uit the polder ben in Elburg opgegroeid en heb jaren in Zwolle gewoont. Mijn moeder was een Friesin en mijn vader kwam uit Drente. Phew, what an effort it is to write in Dutch.

I am a script writer and have also a script blog. You can find the link on MD. I'll be back to see more of that wonderful town of Utrecht.

I'm commenting here at the top, having read road "U" posts. You've put a lot of work into all this, and it's fascinating. I've never visited Utrecht - looks as if I should!

Thank you for your nice comment at my "garden-shots".

I can understand that your cusin miss her garden.
I'm so lucky that my mother did the most of the job with the garden. She was like a gardener. After she died and my father moved to a new flat, I moved to my parents house. That's why I have a lovely garden. And many memories:)

So wonderful photo you have of Utrecht. I have always wantet to see this city. Thank you for sharing:)

Fascinating posts for U, and what lovely old buildings. I think you would be so inspired if you were studying at one of these ancient places of learning. Do you have your idea for V?

CaBaCuRl said...

Me again, yes, you are right...lapis was often used for Pharaohs ,especially to make scarab beetles.

Alan said...

Well, there is all sorts of U's for us to choose from. :) Don't know why I didn't think of University - I scrolled through pictures that included a University and never gave it a thought! :)

reader Wil said...

Thanks Marvin I like your 3 generation of shoppers too! Especially the baby!

reader Wil said...

Cabacuri thanks for the explanation of lapis lazuli. Yes I have an idea for "V". Have you?

reader Wil said...

Alan, it's so good to see so many different U's and I happened to have lots of photos of Cambridge and Oxford.

Dina said...

Ahh, you make me want to come and enroll as a student.

reader Wil said...

Thank you Dina. As a matter of fact I was a student psychology for only a year at the Utrecht University. It was not what I was looking for so I decided to go to the training college for teachers.
This place was very beautiful and still is.
