Last week Ilkka and I visited Groningen for the first time. We had the perfect excuse: my colleague, our friend from IIASA defended his PhD thesis.

The city itself was small and cosy-looking. It took us long to drive there, the Afluitdijk was long and quite impressive, although you couldn’t see water on both sides because of the dam. We JUST made it to follow the whole procedure. One always forgets how long it takes in a new city to find a parking garage and walk back to where you wanted to be..

Attached are some photos from the occasion. I love those road-trips.. And kind Ilkka drove us home too in the middle of the night – that is how little he consumes alcohol these days :* gotta love that!
