Groningen, the Netherlands (II)

Looking for grit and urban wastelands filled with graffiti, desolation and postmodern headache? Hit the back button. This is Groningen, capital of the province of Groningen, and we like it clean, tidy and well organized. Red brick galore. Old stuff from medieval times. Europeaness. That sort of thing. Nonetheless...enjoy!

Thanks for the tour AJW.
