Brugge, Belgium #3 5-13
Strolling around town we notice a sign advertising a free harp concert. It was a fabulous performance by Luc Vanlaere playing several unique instruments. One of his original compositions was titled “Along Silk Road-Heading East”. Of course we had to by the CD. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cDAA5XXfdQ and http://mp3hamster.net/muz/luc%20vanlaere#.Ucd1r-BpdcM
Aside from chocolate and beer, Brugge was also a center for delicate lace work (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYSTZ4dDQKA). Belgium painters were famous for their extreme realism and detail. Museums had wonderful examples of both.
