Sunday, 1st of April Easter Sunday: 

 starting with a sumptious breakfast

walking the authentic streets of Maastricht

a few drops of rain

Visiting the 'Ted Noten' exhibition at the Museum aan het Vrijthof.

Next stop: the Student hotel, which is situated in the former Sphinx factory. In the 'hall of fame', situated next to the Student hotel, there is an enormous wall of tiles, which presents the history of the factory. Very  interesting.

boerenbont :-)

Aan de overkant van het Student hotel bevindt zich een industrieel gebied (soort Strijp S) waar ongetwijfeld over een tijdje hele trendy gebouwen/activiteiten komen. 
Wij bezochten in Bureau Europa de tentoonstelling Die Unvollendete 

'De overkapping van de Maas, het van den Ende Theater bij het Bassin of de Calatrava Campus in Randwyck. Stuk voor stuk ambitieuze projecten die uiteindelijk nooit zijn uitgevoerd. Ergens tussen idee en werkelijkheid sneuvelden ze. Bureau Europa brengt met de tentoonstelling ‘Die Unvollendete’ een eerbetoon aan niet-gerealiseerde projecten. 
Een reis door een Maastricht dat had kunnen zijn, maar nooit is geworden'.
