A chronicle of our life in Brugge...
"Close to the region where the Champagne grapes grow, the land is also golden
with barley; France begins to sound Flemish, and blends into Belgium; the wine nations
yield to the beer lands.....the respect and the ceremony that other nations reserve for wine,
the Belgians also accord, with a special flourish, to beer." - Jackson

Walking in Damme
Yesterday we took Sophie for a walk in Damme, which is only a few minutes drive from Bruges.
After a long walk we went into the centre of the medieval town, and looked around a book shop (Damme is known as a book village). Apparantely every second Sunday of the month they have a book market in the Market Square so one day we'll pop along....
Before heading home we went for a beer at Sint Pietershoeve Cafe where Sophie dug a hole by our table, jumped on the waiter, and smashed an ashtray.
