After dropping the bikes off and having a quick feed, we went and saw Luc Vanlaere . He is a famous musician who plays all of his own compositions on a variety of harps (orchestral, classical, meditation one, one with 240 strings he had crafted… and some others!). All hand made, no electronics or synthetic sounds. What a character! It was free entry, with donations welcomed. ...
... through the town's streets, down narrow alleyways and across bridges. We stopped briefly at the Church of Our Lady (which was, unfortunately, undergoing some extensive renovations). Wanting to get out of the rain, we ducked into Old Bruges restaurant for lunch.

Brugge is a brilliant place to visit and there is definitely much more to see there, so another trip will be in order sometime soon!
