It was a wonderful opportunity during a business trip for Jorge to meet with dear Ellen and Keith in their home town, actually the original place from which Dutch emigrants to America took the name for what it is Brooklyn, NY, today. This community is situated to the north west of Utrecht, along the river Vecht and close to the lakes of the Loosdrechtse Plassen, an area of natural and touristic interest. During the 17th century many wealthy Amsterdam merchant families built their mansions along the river near Breukelen.
Keith arranged a short boat trip to the lakes just outside their home, a pleasant way to appreciate the fantastic job Dutchmen have done to gain land. The visit included a fantastic dinner at the Restaurant in de Watertuin a very typical place nearby. What a great way to share memories of our days in Lausanne.
