Let’s go to Maastricht for the pie!

Recently, our program organized an overnight trip to Maastricht, a city that is located southeast of the Netherlands. We took a city tour of the picturesque city before stopping to sample the famous Limburg pies.  After wandering in the shopping streets, we were treated with a decadent three-course meal to end the first day. Given that I had been satisfying myself with limited variations of pasta, the meal was one of the best meals I had eaten during my time in this country.

The next day, we explored St. Pietersberg Caves, a network of subterranean mining tunnels that at one point was used to hide Rembrandt’s Nightwatch. We then proceeded to take a long walk to reach Belgium…for ice cream! The two scoops of coffee and chocolate ice cream were very well deserved.  Overall, Maastrict was a chance to explore more of my host country, and I appreciated how our program works hard to provide its students a general overview of the culture and history of the Netherlands.
