Sunny Day in Ghent

by - Saturday, May 26, 2012

BabyLuv and I started off by cleaning the house: it smelled so fresh and clean. It really made me happy. Then Emi came over. We sat on the balcony to enjoy the sun and we chatted a little before heading for lunch at Or Expresso Bar to have some bagels.
Emi had to go early but we had plenty of time to chat and catch up and laugh.
BabyLuv and I decided to go for a bike ride around town since it was so beautiful out.
We went to the graffiti street and I took a few pictures but there weren't as many good graffiti this time around. I'll post the pictures on my photography blog. We went to a teeny tiny pub next to the canal, Barrazza, that we've never seen before. It was really charming out there, in the shadow enjoying some cool drinks.
Right after contemplating life in Ghent, we biked to Vrijdagmarkt and watched a puppet show for a little while, that was so cute and funny. We biked around the plaza and enjoyed seeing other people enjoying themselves as well.
Then we went on but I was feeling thirsty again so we stopped at a café/restaurant called Bord'eau: it was very disappointing service-wise (long wait, not friendly, not polite, not smiling) but the view was amazing and downstairs was spectacular!
We continued our little ride around town and were sometimes surrounded by so many people that it got difficult to bike. Though seeing so many people enjoying this marvelous day was so delightful: Ghent is such a lively city! We're so lucky to live in such a wonderful and beautiful European city.
