... After checking into our hotel, an ex monastery, we went on a walking tour of Brugge with a local guide. She was very good. There are 23 churches in this small town. There is a river that runs through the centre of town. A very pretty place that is steeped in history, dry much like the rest of Europe, I imagine.
