Yes, there is information on that wiki, but as far as travel it pretty much
duplicates what was on the host site as far as reaching Maastricht and the
information as to getting around is focused entirely on the city center, in
particular it notes that having a car can be painful, wherase in hindisght
that would have been of a tremendous help to me. There's also no mention at
all of the MECC. Again, if I were on holiday in Maastricht, which seems to
be the central focus of any write-up, then no problems.

I considered a bike, but that wouldn't have been any safer for me at nite
than walking and there was lots of discussion on the list about not leaving
bikes outside at nite and I don't think carrying a bike into my hotel at
nite would have worked well.

Mary.
