... and rain, (we both agreed that we'd prefer the rain to the wind) after a rather short but good day's ride. Ypres is one of the prettiest towns we've been in this trip. It has a great old cobbled town square surrounded by lovely old buildings and a grand cathedral. There's a rather good WW1 Museum also in the town square.

One of our male students, Myron, felt like he was "in" with ...
