I went to town today and visited the little beguinage. Plenty of tourists to stand in the way of any picture you're trying to take there! ;-)
They have now put a little garden on the nun's grave.

I liked this tree.

I liked this statue too.

In fact, I liked it all :-) It's just a wonderful place in town.

I walked home along the canals.

Scored a few more Hot Wheels too...

Late arvo I took the bus to Simone's again. Right before we wanted to enter the tunnel the coppers came and blocked it off. Later I heard there had been a non-fatal accident.

The poles

You can now see the tips of the poles they've been "pouring" in the past weeks. Pretty cool I think. I like seeing construction.

The love-locks

I saw this little family while going to work. It's close to my house. They didn't seem scared...

In the evening I went in to town to get some new clothes. The weather was real nice.

After shopping I went to Mulligans to meet up with Gerrit. It was a fun evening with a couple of lovely pints of real Irish cidre.

The bench from the movie "blah blah in the stars" or something is now the latest target of "love-locks"...

The flop

On my way to work I noticed this girl having a cigarette in the doorway of this shabby sandwich shop. The picture flopped because I had to rush and the stupid sign is right in the middle. Oh and it's too dark. Oh well...

My fountain

I had to get my half-yearly dental check. My dentist has this sign in the waiting room. I'm not so sure what to think of the icon...

After the dentist I was going to meet Eva for dinner to catch up a bit. Since I was a bit early I sat at my favourite fountain a while.

Eva and I met at I Trulli, an Italian restaurant that I love. They have a very large tropical aquarium.
I had carpaccio and pizza and it was delicious. It was nice catching up with Eva, a lot of things had happened since I last saw her.

Today is Larissa's actual birthday. Ilse and Cassie came over which was a very nice surprise arranged by Simone. We had a BBQ and I practiced a new trick I picked up from the tellie the other day. On some BBQ show they said to move the coals to one side so that when it gets too hot, you can move whatever is on the grill to the other side for slow cooking or cooling down.

The party

We were celebrating Larissa's birthday today. My mom and dad came early. It was very nice seeing them. My dad has improved a lot too which was good.
In the afternoon a lot of people showed up and it got quite busy. Some people stayed for dinner and some even later. By 20:30 I was toast. But it was a very fun day!
