Happy Spring! It's been bizarrely warm and sunny here, as we've heard it is in the Northeastern US. Flowers are up, trees are budding. Flipflops have been sighted. It's very hard to justify hot chocolate.
Signs of spring in Gent:
The nearby park, where we walk most days.
The student bars, where outdoor tables fill up as soon as it gets above freezing.
Frites or waffles? Or both?
And the carnival on St. Pietersplein, which has been running day and night for 3 weeks now.
