A day out

Yesterday, I went to Ghent, the city where my son studies. I really like the medieval houses and churches, and very important: there are no cars allowed in the touristic centre.



We also paid a visit to the lace-shop of my husbands niece. I couldn't resist this apron and towel, embroidered with a cute chicken. In case you want to take a look there: the shop is on the Koornlei, and it's called "Home linen".

So you came to Ghent??? The city where your son studies? It also happens to be the city where I live... if you know what I mean. Grrrr!

I should love to visit Ghent as I love the achitecture so much and the lace shop would keep me occupied for ages. I hope small shops like this will be able to survive this terrible credit crunch thing; many over here are struggling. Looking forward to some sunshine! Eli
