Week 32: Weather/Utrecht

Filed under: — Administrator @ 00:43

This week is dominated by weather. The alleged summer in the Netherlands seemingly ended at the beginning of August. The rain is a nuisance, but it does make the sky look more interesting:

One afternoon, the sky over my house looked like this:

When it does not rain, the mornings are hazy, like here:

But sometimes we do get blue sky, and then it is time to head out for a walk. The town on whose outskirts I live, Almere, is only 30 years old, so you will not find much of the typical charming Dutch architecture. But it does have its own personality. Here is the newly built town centre:

The last two images are from a walk in Utrecht. First, the bicycle parking near the Central Station:

And finally, a little shopper at the outdoor market:
