... probably would've been ok as most places in Belgium take plastic, but I don't like to be without some cash. In Romania, it was very important!
Mechelen was cute, and they had a great market happening. I found the center ...
... the restoration and cleaning of
these ancient tapestries. After that, back to the barge for lunch, then
ventured out to try and see 2 Rubens. The first church was closed, but the 2nd
one open, so we went in and was enthralled.
Have to pack tonight for my trip to Eindhoven tomorrow. But
