I need a haircut! Let's see how this can go. ;). Anyway. Ghent has been a very relaxed, chill stop. Just what I needed after the first part of my trip! I've only finished about one fourth of my trip so far, but it feels like its been 4 months!

Ghent is. Cool, tons of midevil and gothic architecture. Not nearly as many tourists as bruge but offers more in the sense of beer, activities, live music, and parties. It's quite a bit of a college town so tons of dj s and parties around town. Yesterday there was a market downtown so I had a good time eating down there. :).

Today not much of anything going on around town do I toured a castle that counts usesto use int he middle ages. Very cool museum w A torture room that has a full on account of how torture took place in the middle ages.
Also spent some time in the cathedral. Was pretty sweet. So many pieces of stained glass and artifacts and sculptures. Amazing

Did some other stops around town and had a picnic and then spent some time just relaxing w a beguim beer by the river of course. I was the only one in my hostel room last night so I got some good sleep. Early bedtime tonight is on the agenda. Tomorrow I will spend a day in brussels doing A beer tour and then off to cologne for 2 nights. I will then spend a night in wurzburg, rothenburg, augsburg, and fussed each before ending up in Munich for 4 days!

Till next time!

Haircut! Saw in my Italy book that Rick Steves has been going to a guy, Benito, for 20 years. We should find him if you can wait 2 more weeks :)
