June 5, 2013

This morning, I hope we are taking time to tour the Bastogne Barracks, which is a guided tour with a military person.  These are the barracks of Gen. MacAuliffe during the war, restored to help keep the memory alive!

And then we are off to Bruge.  This is a place that Jo, in particular, wanted to visit - and to take photographs. 

Jo has made a reservation for us at a most phenomenal place...called the Medieval House in the Center of Bruges.  You may google that and see for yourself!  The house looks so grand, I may just want to stay home all day and wander from room to room, and pretend its where I live - like in a fairy tale!

We also have a very dear AFS friend who lives in Bruges with his wife.  Eric was a student in Marshall MO the year before we had our daughter, Ani - and we love him dearly.  Both Carl and we have visited his parents when they lived near Amsterdam on earlier trips of ours - and we adored his parents as well.  Eric & Veronique are struggling right now with her ailing mother - so we don't know what the future will hold and if we will actually get to see them or not - but we hope so.

Meanwhile, we will spend the nights of June 5 & 6 in Bruges, and as much of the day on the 7th as we want, before we head the Brussels and find overnight accommodations at the Brussels airport in preparation for our flight back to Dallas all day long on Saturday, June 7th.

Thanks for following us on our journey - we look forward to sharing our trip with you in person or via blogs after we return home!
