Nearly the end of a very busy day in Belgium

After a busy and cold day we have returned to the hotel for tea and a freshen up before heading out to the Menin Gate Last Post Ceremony (and then chocolate shopping!!!!)

 

To find out more about why we visit the Menin Gate at this time of night please see the link below:

Everyone has found today really interesting and, at times, moving.

The below picture is not our hotel but an underground recreation of one of the trenches… we definitely prefer our hotel more!
