Bruges is beautiful! I just had to say that first. Such a cute little town full of canals and ancient houses and buildings. I remember researching Bruges at home and being so excited about it, and now I know why. It is very cute, very picturesque. Meera and I didn’t get here until after 1, but we still saw quite a bit of the town, and we went on a little boat cruise around the canals. Unfortunately I forgot my camera at the hostel (locked up safely, but still) so I didn’t get to take any pictures on this beautiful day! But we had fun. Got lost and had some pretty rude service, but saw lots of chocolate shops, beer shops, cute houses, horse carriages (wtf?) and dogs. Apparently Bruges people love their animals. Even stopped to pet a baby border collie, which was probably the highlight of my day. Fun! There were lots of cute shops so I think I’ll be making my way around those tomorrow, as well as the chocolate museum and the fries museum that we missed today. I still have no voice (since Paris.. Not sure if I mentioned that) and there are no smoking laws in Belgium. Cool! Everyone around me is smoking it’s not good for the throat. I so appreciate the laws in Canada now! Anyways hope everyone is doing well at home!
