Belgium Roadtrip Summer 2013: PART 5

This post mainly consists of junk and food. We have now arrived in Ghent. I think it was my favorite town of the three. It wasn't too big, but it was made up of tons of gorgeous buildings, lots of fun shops and restaurants and coincidently we arrived just when 'De Gentse Feesten' (The Parties of Ghent) started. This was basically a ten day long festival with live music and street artists everywhere.
First impression of the city. Did we go back in time!?
It kind of reminded me of Venice!
See what I mean?

We finally decided to get a 'real' waffle. Needless to say, it was delicious.
Lesley Knope would be impressed.

Me and my mom both love markets, especially when there's lots and lots of junk lying around. So naturally, that's the first thing we went looking for! Soon enough we found it and we were not disappointed.

Aren't these multi-colored houses CUTE?? Why can't all streets in the world be like this?

We needed more junk. One can never get enough of rummaging through other people's old stuff. We also found this second hand shop which even had a seperate space with old toys (aka vintage barbie things and robots!!)
See that coat on the left? It was soooo pretty, but a little too expensive :c
Robots! (with a face!)

Barbie and Ken workout gear!
Next, it was time for lunch! We found this really nice place 'Simon Says' that mainly uses local and organic products. We got a delicious carrot soup with some of the best bread ever!

The rest of the day we listened to live music, had dinner at a delicious thai restaurant (red curry with chicken, bamboo and coconut milk!) and survived through the rest of the loud night thanks to our complimentary ear plugs! Stay tuned for day two!
