My friend, Ann, and I just returned from 3 weeks in Europe. I took over 1000 photos and promise not to post them all!
I wanted to see the Basilica of the Holy Blood which houses a vial containing the blood of Christ. Not realizing it is brought out every Friday I found myself able to step into a very short line to stand in front of the vial, place my hand on it and say a little prayer. Something I never imagined being able to do. Within a couple of minutes the church was closed for the day. In the first photo there are stairs to the right of the photo so you are standing in front of the priest. The second is the interior of the church.
We took a ride through the canals of Brugge. That's me in the 1st photo.
Then we toured the Chocolate Museum always remembering our RV friends who love the stuff. These figures are made of chocolate, naturally.
