First Rotary trip of the year! Bruges! famous for its canals and tall towers!
We had nice tours by nice volunteer rotarians and their spouses. And then Galetes des rois to celebrate Epiphany! (that's the king cake with a little totem inside. He who finds the little character in his slice of cake gets to wear a crown)
|A large fountain with dancing people.|
|Rotary kids love posing for photos! Somehow I missed my chance to be in one or take one... :(|
|A great huge church with a Michelangelo piece in it!|
|that's her. You have to pay to get closer.|
|Chocolate in Bruges is famous. They have a lot of little genuine Belgian chocolate shops. I can't remember the word I'm thinking of, but it means that there is only one of them in the world, little private shops.|
|Another thing Bruges is famous for is LACE! Lots of little lace shops too.|
|The square-cornered roofs are very Flemish. They're in Ghent a lot, too.|
It's an architecture style that is very distinguishable. Wallons think it's pretty!
As long as it stays in Flanders!
|This is a government building. Apparently frequented by bikes and prams.|
|and a really nice car.|
