Canal Tour

Took a lovely tour of the canals of Bruges. Apparently, instead of fortifying Bruges, they just dug a giant moat around (and through) the whole city. It’s kind of awesome. Our tour guide/driver said everything in English, then French, then Dutch. Most everyone in Belgium speaks all three of those languages fairly fluently. Many speak Flemish as well. I barely passed high school Spanish. That is very sad.
