IN BRUGES

Tucked away in the northwesten corner of Belgium is this small city, Bruges, that looks like a mini-Venice because of its numerous canals. Added to that are the cobbled stone streets, medieval buildings and the main square marked by a beautiful 14th-century Stadhuis ( City Hall) and you got a postcard-pretty place to explore. Very close to our hotel is this group of attractive ensemble of 15th-century buildings on the corner of the Dijver Canal where, in 1471 the fugitive English king Edward IV took shelter during his brief exile in the Flemish city. It is now a museum and one of the most-photographed attractions around. Across is this small pier where I stood to take this shot before we boarded one of the numerous boats that docked here to take tourists sightseeing.
