Bruges

We went to my in-laws this weekend, for various visits, birthday parties and dinner parties. This reminded me that I still had a bunch of pictures on my hard disk from a couple of months ago. I took my camera with me then, to make a couple of pictures in bad light conditions and grey weather. Excellent for a black-and-white portrait of this ancient city.

Bruges is one of those cities that installs a skating rink every year on the square in front of the famous Belfort.

Bruges is world famous for its lace. Given the amount of lace that the tourists buy here every year, you'd expect that every person living in Bruges does nothing but weaving lace all day long from the moment they are potty-trained until they are put to the grave, 24 hours per day, seven days a week.
