Schoon ouderwets is ook niet lelijk

This is Gent through the eyes of the spaniards! Enjoy them!
And to finish, a beautiful latin palindrom I found years ago and I just love:

In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni

(it means something like "we make circles (spin?) in the nigh and are consumed by the fire". People disagree if it´s a riddle, if talks about demons or just describes the movement of moths torwards a flame. Anyway, looks beautiful to me. And there is a tale of a moth who falls in love with the moon, and his friends suggest to fall in love with a candle, like EVERYBODY else, but he was soo in love with the moon no candle could seduce him, and at the end he is the only one living, because the rest of mothe were burned in the candles... something like that.

Anyways, I hope you like the pictures!
