    Today we rode 35kms in moderate winds, we went to a ruins/excavation of the Monastery at Ename, which was first built in the 10th century, stopping for coffee in Elcesnaffle before riding on again beside the canal for most of the day. We did stop again around at around 30 Kms to have lunch beside the canal, the owner had two beautiful Bernese Mountain dogs who greeted us with happy faces barking a baritone welcome. We arrived in Ghent and Albert took us by bike into ...

As it turned out, it was too "easy" and the four of us felt like we were barely moving. The ...

    ... up to the hotel, we saw her at the lobby computer. It was clear she had been wondering where we were as well! We dropped our stuff at the hotel, freshened up a bit and off we went. I had read about the brewery in the old town, and the tour sounded great. So we walked in that general direction. Stopping for waffles (for lunch) on the way.

    Number three on the list is busses. They seem a lot less menacing than trams but there are plenty of them.

    And all these dangers are exacerbated by the number of people around on the narrow streets, with vehicles and building sites blocking the pavements, forcing you into the path of whatever vehicle it is on the road.

    Perhaps for all these reasons tram drivers seemed to be very patient (except ...
