Lace shops a go-go in Ghent. I noticed that all of items for sale were marked "handmade." I asked the sales clerk about this, suspecting they were "handmade" in China. She said the needle work is done by elderly Belgians. Is this true? I wanted to buy a few doilies for framing, but lost energy. So pretty aren't they?
This was a garden shop that sold flower flavored ice cream. Emily and I each had a sample. She tasted Orange Blossom. I tried Rose Petal. So glad I only had a taste, it was too perfumey. Not at all like the subtle Rose macaroon from Laduree. Anyone else tried flower flavored ice cream?
I loved this store. It is called Huiszwaluw. Managed to find a few things there that I couldn't live without.
Saw this sign at a public toilet. Does anyone know anything about it?
This confused me. Anyone?
Ah, Belgian chocolates. We each picked out one. Eva had a milk chocolate rose. Mine was coconut with Contreau. Audrey's was shaped like a crown and filled with orange flavored ganache. Bryce chose best. Hands down. His was a little cup of the best caramel you've ever tasted.
Brussels here we come!
