Family Time!

Katie spent a cool 2 weeks with me here in Gent! It was a bit cozy sharing a room for that long, but nonetheless was nice to have some family around. It was also great, as I made four trips in Belgium and France in two weeks that I probably otherwise would not have made. Brugge, Kortrijk, Lille, and Paris! Also, some really fantastic meals were had. Gent waterzooi, some Turkish dish that I have no clue what it was, and plenty of frites, crepes, and escargots. And of course many student dinners consisting of rices and pastas (always enhanced with a little Ethiopian berbere powder zing!).
