I've booked us for the last week in August. Can't afford it, of course, BUT we do get a 'free third night' in a posh, very central hotel,a 72-hour travel pass, and entry to the museums for a very good price. Just had to... Moto, and others who've been there, any suggestions for interesting places for two gimpy old trouts with sticks to explore?
I've just been to the exhibit of Japanese Outsider Art at the Wellcome Collection, and greatly enjoyed it. They seem to get it right every time; I've never seen a dull show there, and it's free. crunchcandy and other crafty types should like the fabric work in this exhibit, too. It's open until 30 June, so plenty of time, still.

I got one of those DVDs I didn't order from LoveFilm, ALEX CROSS a pretty ordinary  Cop V Psychokiller  thing, worth sticking with (just) for the Detroit location stuff. Meh.
Also watched JACK REACHER, which was a bit more interesting, but not a lot. Must say Tom Cruise's torso is extremely well maintained. The best bit was a lizard-eyed cameo from Werner Herzog as a Very Bad Man.
Here's some more doodlediary scritches, all out of order, but at least they've re-appeared...

Ghent is prettier than Antwerp to my mind, and smaller and easier to amble around. There are some gorgeous overblown churches and a reasonable castle all in the center. Lots of pretty bars and a famous jenever bar that you should check out. (Every flavour you can imagine!) Here's the owner...

Can't think of anything specific - but it's overall a lovely place to stroll over.

Thanks. It sounds really nice. Mmm,overblown churches!


Ghent sounds fantastic!

I've been plotting a trip to see that exhibition since I first heard about it- my friend Becky and I are planning on visiting as soon as possible. Would you be interested in seeing it again? (Becky is Kissing Candy on fbook)

Wouldn't mind, actually. It's excellent, and I'm sure you'll like it.

I saw him in OBLIVION. Not a bad film but very predictable.
