At 02.30 on Thursday morning the trams stop running in Gent and the bridges can at last be raised for us to enter the city center, the first time boats have been allowed to do this for four years. We moor up and sink into bed at 05.30.

There are thousands of spectators, many of whom seem to be more interested in our English narrowboat than these beautiful old wooden ships we are travelling with.
