Bruges, Belgium

<b>Bruges, Belgium</b><br>
<br>
Perhaps "underrated" doesn't apply to Bruges, but it's one of the most pleasant places we've visited. It exceeded our expectations. We found a small hotel in Bruges that was delightful -- nice room; excellent plumbing; good elevator though small; wonderful breakfasts with meats, cheeses and sweet rolls; and free computer use. We walked the town from top to bottom, peeked into stores and restaurants, watched women weave lace, observed boats on the canals loaded with tourists, visited ancient churches, ate frites and Belgian waffles. When we were there, there was a parade, which included men dressed in armor on horseback and a princess served by a serf.<br>
