Foggy Ghent



There are so many versions of European city names...
Some in English, some in French, others in whatever else.

This small city 30 minutes away from Brussels is called;

Gent, Ghent, or Gand
(Flemish, English and French respectively.)




It was particularly foggy that day.
Sunshine is nice, of course.
Especially during the winter months in Geneva.
But, this fog add extra mystique to this medieval town.

The Saint Bavo Cathedral.

This is not the only towering establishment in town.

From the closest; St. Nicolas' Church, Belfry of Ghent, St. Bavo.

To see these majestic edifices in the fog is surreal.
As if I'm sleep walking.
But then something like tram, a piece of modernism,
pulls me back to reality.

Ghent too has canals much like Bruges.

What sets them apart might be this.

Gravensteen.
It's a castle built in the Middle Ages.
We didn't go in because dogs aren't allowed inside.

Although there weren't many more sites to see in Ghent,
I enjoyed being in the city.
I liked the relaxed ambiance of this well-kept medieval town.

Look who's acting like a king?
