... our barge. Our accommodation is basic but clean and the crew and our guide seem to be very good. After dinner we had our test ride into Ghent for a walking tour of the city and then a ride back to the boat in the dark. Ghent is quite lovely and would deserve a longer visit.  It is a real city with a large university which gives it a vibrant feel instead of a tourist maintained town that rolls up the sidewalk when the tour busses ...
