In Bruges

Yes, I’m actually in Bruges. It’s not just a pun to the movie bearing that name. The medieval town is like a construction from a fairy tale, with cobbled streets and winding alleys. With a lot of canals, it reminds me of Amsterdam or Venice.

Oh well, who am I trying to fool? Time to ascend the Belfry and try not my best to call any tourists “a bunch of fuckin’ elephants”. Or at least refrain from using the rudest word in the universe, according to the Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy.

Belgium. There, I said it.

“But then, like a flash, it came to me. And I realized, fuck man, maybe that’s what hell is: the entire rest of eternity spent in fuckin’ Bruges. And I really really hoped I wouldn’t die.” – Ray, In Bruges

“I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn’t, so it doesn’t.” – Ray, In Bruges
