Dear friends of TE, I must always back to my archive through my long disease, I cannot to the city or the nature.
Maybe next week can I use my bike, but with short distances, back to the open air, and maybe back to the dancing school, but very quiet.

The Graslei is a street in the historical center of the Belgian city of Ghent. The Graslei is the quay on the right bank of the Lys. The quay and street on the left is the Korenlei. It lies between the grass Bridge and St Michael's Bridge in.
From the 11th century the growing trade along the quays and this became the city's harbor. St Michael's Church and St. Nicholas Church came from both sides of the Lys near the port created. Because of the grain pile right of the city, it happened all imports of grain in the County of Flanders and Ghent via the Grass and Korenlei were combined with the Korenmarkt the center of the grain trade in Flanders.
The current building is still a remnant of the time, already been adapted several buildings in the 18th and 19th centuries. For the World Exhibition of 1913 in Ghent facades were thoroughly restored. The cityscape of the Graslei and Korenlei was protected in 1952 as a landscape and in 1994 the two quays, their environment and the adjacent buildings were also protected as a cityscape
