  Graslei - a cool evening in Gent
by Groentje

Favorite thing: Especially in Winter, the city is very nice in the evening. The picture attached was taken in January 04, on a walk through the very centre of Gent. It was snowing quite hard and we decided to go and take some pictures of monuments while the effects were so magical. Of course, it stopped snowing (or became weaker anyway) when we arrived, but I managed to take two very nice pictures.
The one here shows the St.Michielshelling seen from the Graslei, with to the left the clock of the Post Plaza (former Post office) and to the right a church the name of which I will look up and definitely tell you!

Fondest memory: Snow pouring down, city lights lit, seeing the shadow of the snow flakes on the ground :-)...
