... arrangement of Coldplay's "Midnight". But overall the night was a success and our Brugge hosts gracious again.
But back to the start of the day... after the traditional European breakfast of cereal, bread and cheeses, we had a charter bus take us to Ypres (also known as Ieper, both pronounced "eeper").
