Ghent. after almost 4 months (!) of not leaving the Netherlands at all, i had to go to Belgium for an exam. i figured i'd make the best of it, so took one of the first trains to Ghent, where lovely Karolien joined me for a long walk. we saw pretty houses, canals and even some forgotten confetti. i think we crossed the whole city center, but that's okay as Ghent never stops to amaze me.
