I've got a lot of pics, but it has taken me forever to get around to posting them. And most of them are of old buildings... (Duh!) But here are some pictures.
This fortified me for presenting my paper... (No pics of me--I ate too much.)

Gravensteen, a 12th-century castle in the middle of Ghent. Taken from a tour boat on the Leie River. Gravensteen has an (ahem) interesting collection of torture instruments on display. There was one where they'd strap someone to a wooden bed and put his meals on a table, just slightly out of reach. (Someone should have done that to me while I was there...)
