Gent

I realised yesterday that I never showed you anything of my trip to Belgium apart from a beer glass, so here is a panorama I shot from one of Gent's many bridges in the centre of the old town.


As you can see it wasn't exactly the ideal time of year for really appreciating the architecture as a lot of it was hidden behind the stages set up for the music festival. On the plus side there was plenty for me to do in the evenings, besides drinking Belgium beer.

It's a long time since I visited Gent. I have a feeling that it had a big town square but I can't be sure. Places tend to get a bit mixed up after a while.

Yes it has a number of large squares near the town hall, but just about every open space had been turned into a concert venue, so it was difficult to get a full sense of the scale of the place. Mind you I'm certainly not complaining as it was a really fun trip which, beer money aside, I didn't have to pay for!
