Surprise birthday party

On Saturday, March 7th, we were invited to a surprise birthday party. We all had to be dressed in a disco outfit. The birthday girl turned 50!! Her husband is a client of our pub so we were invited too. It was so much fun. I danced a lot and even Eric tried the dancefloor :-)

Finally another update

Life has been hectic over here. My mother is in hospital since a week. She had to go through a surgery. I go there every evening so I don't have much time left for anything else.
Three weeks ago, we went to Gent for 2 nights. Gent is a wonderful, medieval city. I went there to study to become a teacher. I stayed there for 4 years. It was like a trip back in time for me :-)
Warning: long photo post!!!
This one and the next one are my favourite ones.

Medieval building

Can you believe this??? This is a pub called 'the littel bike'. It has all kinds of bikes and other stuff on the ceiling. It is so packed with stuff that there are only 2 tables. I guess there is only place for 8 people.

Lovely dinner

We went for a late drink and saw a couple that we know. It was his birthday so we ended up drinking champagne

This street is called 'grafiti street'. Hmmm, why did it get that name??

The old post office, now a shopping mall.

There are so many nice bars in Gent. This is one of them. Can you see Eric and me??
