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.










The owner of the shop





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??

Hi, hoop dat je moeder zich beter voelt.
Moest wel lachten om de graffiti straat. De laatste keer dat we in Gent waren heb ik me helemaal gek gezocht hiernaar en zonder resultaat. Waar zit die straat????
