D2 and A visit

IMG_5272

D2 had a conference in Brussels so they came early and spent a long weekend with us.  We visited Ghent and had a wonderful lunch.

Ghent has very beautiful architecture, it is so quintessentially dutch.

Several people have asked if Ghent or Gent is the correct spelling - the answer is both are right.  Ghent is the Dutch spelling and Gent is the French.

We always get ice cream when we are together.....from a truck, but homemade!

I love this photo - It looks like one of my collages.

Poor A - she seems to be taking all the photos on this adventure.

On Monday we explored our neighborhood.  This view of downtown Brussels is just a short walk from our apartment.

We have not seen Steve since his wedding, 10 years ago!  He started a new job and it will bring him to Europe several times a year.

We gave him a whirlwind tour of the city, getting him a beer, and escargot from the cart.

Steve's timing was very good as the Manneken Pis was dressed.

and we caught the tail end of the parade from the Manneken Pis event.  They had a bulldog mascot.
