    1. Just have a look at the meaning of the Treaty of Ghent for the early ( end 18th century) UK- US relations.
    2. Good to see that the british do not limit themselves to Bruges anymore. Ghent is as nice as Bruges. They were on equal footing ( as far as beauty is concerned) till the 19th century. The difference is that – unlike Bruges- Ghent was industrialised in the 19th century. Thanks to machines coming from the UK. Result: Ghent is not only bigger, but also much more lively than Bruges. For instance music. Brugeshas its well known yearly Renaissance Music concours and festival. Ghent: that’s contemporary art.
