On Thursday, 31st May, we headed to the Markt to get a map and check out the tourist information. We ended up doing a bus tour which was very good and informative. We found a shop called Hema, which was like a small Ikea, round the corner from our hotel. It had a great bistro which seemed to be used by the locals. It was cheap and the food was delicious. We went there often. Across the road from our rooms was a cathedral called Sint-Salvatoreskathedrale. We went in to have a look and a choir was rehearsing. They were from Gloucester Cathedral in the UK and there was a great concert on that afternoon. It was amazing. The accoustics were wonderful as was the organist.
In the afternoon we had a canal ride which was very good. Bruges is just beautiful.
