Breakfast was fantastic! Rooms clean, television with cable. WIFI is available. At times, the people at front desk seemed preoccupied and unwilling to accommodate.

... I did 7 trips.
Kinderdijk: as we got closer, the weather got worse. By the time we arrived, while not a howling gale, it was certainly bleak and blustery. Ponchos essential. The umbrellas suffered in the blustery wind and will never be the same again.
Today, only 8 of the 19 windmills of the Kinderdijk remain and are now UNESCO listed. This complex of windmills ...
... It takes me quite a while as I'm still trying to respond in Spanish, the only one of the three that isn't really helpful here. Maybe Paris can cure me of it. We got off the train and stored our bags in a locker at the station and headed out on foot to find the historical area of town.

And it was pretty too, with ...

One alleyway I went down was totally covered in graffiti, which was totally allowed as there were loads of kids down there adding to it. It was controlled anarchy!
I woke up at about 2pm, very hung-over from the night before. I knew vaguely where the city centre of Gent was, so once I had a shower I went for a relatively aimless walk. On the way from Brussels, Lynn pointed out the three towers of Gent. Really historical looking buildings which were about a five minute walk up the road. So I went up there, took a few photos, and walked around taking in the scenery. Gent is a really pretty city. It's like a ...
