one of the beautiful view-points in Ghent, Belgium's Venice (especially on a bright, blue day; it was a grey, rainy winterday when I took this pic): "the Graslei and the Koornlei. These are the names of two streets which lie along the banks of the old harbour of Ghent, right in the middle of the city. Graslei means 'street of the herbs and vegetables'. Koornlei stands for 'street of the wheat'. Both names indicate that these specific products where traded or stocked in that area."
I'm now away for one week to visit Venice in Italy, one of my beloved towns; I was there 27 years ago - when my italophile mother showed me the most hidden parts of this unique place.
