It was March of this year, and we were on Viking River Cruises' Tulips and Windmills cruise, docked in Ghent, Belgium.
Everyone was going somewhere in Ghent, Dick decided as he explored the ancient city. Everyone was going to the canals. The crowds grew thicker, and Dick grew curiouser and curiouser. Finally, he asked someone, "Is it a holiday? No? Is it a special occasion? No? Will there be a parade? No? Then why is everyone out here?"
"Because it's such a beautiful day. We're all out here to enjoy the sun," the Belgian answered, smiling.
An early Spring day in Belgium, and the people of Ghent were making the most of it.
