day 35

today we went on a day trip to belgium. brugge is a small town called the 'venice of the north' and is so charming even the tourists look inviting. new streets are built to look 400 years old and the basilica has a 'blood soaked cloth with the congealed blood of christ' which you can line up and touch, for a price.

en route to one of the 678 shops selling hand made chocolate
where the makers have shaved their hands so as not to spoil the chocolate...

Clare! You travelling to Brugge for hand-crafted chocolates made by shaven chocolate purists is wholly typical! Please can your next stop be Austria, where you'll learn yodelling, take up virtuoso violin and/or choreograph Gordon in a re-enactment of that serenade from the Sound of Music?
Go know you want to...

shaved hands is an image that gives me a slight shudder and the compulsion to pull at my Adam's apple (is it Eve's pear for a chick?)
Anyways, the thought of good chocolate really doesn't help me get through the night after bloody shaved hands haunts my sleep...
