In Bruges

A group from my work went to Bruges for a weekend. Last time I was there was the middle of Winter, and it was dark and snowy. This time it was the middle of summer, and if Bruges seemed full of tourists in December, it's a lot worse in July.

I was there for less than 24 hours, so I don't have a lot of stories. I just wandered about with my camera. Here are some of the pics.

When I went to Ghent a couple of years back, I meant to eat the local speciality dish called Waterzooi. But I forgot and instead had the worst curry of my life.

However, it turns out that they do waterzooi in Bruges, too. It's a light stew and I had the fish version. Of course, you can't go to Belgium without also eating waffles and frites. After a day of binge eating, the bus that I travelled home on was scraping along the road leaving a trail of sparks all the way to Cambridge. Great trip.
