We visited two historical towns, Gent and Brugge, in a rainy day.
Gent is a smaller one, but it also feels less commercialized.
On the contrary, Brugge has busy and modern shopping streets, that do not fit in well with its historical atmosphere.
But it does has superior view of canals; alas, the weather prevented us from enjoying a boat trip in the canals because the boats there do not seem to have proper roof to protecting us from the rain.
Today's the coldest day so far in our trip.
