A Few More Photos from Bruges
Here are more snaps from last weekend's trip to Bruges.
Being good little tourists, Simon and I make a point of trying the local delicacies, no matter how off-putting they are. Aren't we brave?
I haven't done enough knitting lately. I recently finished this little bag (I modified this pattern a bit).
Today is my birthday though the celebration began Saturday when Simon and I caught a very early train to Bruges (or Brugge), Belgium. More about that later this week.
Yesterday Simon and I visited Utrecht on the recommendation of the mom of one of my students. Having passed through its train station a couple of times, we mistakenly assumed the city wasn't especially nice. (Never judge a city by the area around the train station.) Two highlights of our day were going to the Dick Bruna Huis and eating gyros outside the Domkerk.

Last Saturday, Simon and I went to Maastricht. In total, we were gone 14 hours. A couple of weekends ago, my parents – Buddy ‘n Brenda – took a road trip. They were gone 30 hours. Once Mom, Daddy, and I took an 18-hour trip to the beach – and that included an overnight stay. We know how to live.
Our friends Federica and Marcel have just returned from their annual vacation to Italy, and they brought us back these lovely surprises.
Hugh was the first (and only, sort of – I’ll get to that in a bit) to post the book he has most recently read. I’m just wondering if he plans to teach Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying this year. What fun! (I’m not being sarcastic. I love that book.) So for Hugh, I will select a splendid Dutch treat. Hmm, perhaps something for the new school year or for his new office, which – I know for a fact – is spacious and has a breathtaking (is there any other kind?) view of a student parking lot.
