Belgium - pre-trip list

(The Ypres Cat Parade, one of the events I'll be missing during my Autumn visit; image source)

Flickr is hilarious, supplying all the travel photos anyone could ever want, including interiors and illegal snaps, making it easy to describe places never visited (yet):

Tate Britain - London to see Francis Bacon,

The National Gallery in London to see 'Renaissance Faces',

Tate Modern - London to see Mark Rothko (interior shots),

The Gravensteen in Ghent,

S.M.A.K. in Ghent,

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels,

The Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp,

MUHKA in Antwerp,

Chapel of the holy blood, Bruges,

Groeninge Musuem, Bruges,

Although I'll be missing the summer festivals, the Witches Parade, and the Cat Parade...!

A new painting almost complete (above is a detail), just in time for the need to get organized before the Belgium trip, commencing the morning of October 23rd. To celebrate, here is some amazing music from my childhood.
