We had a slow start in Amsterdam this morning...
There was a train accident in Amsterdam last night.  A head on collision of two trains.  Many people injured and one has subsequently died.  Trains out of Amsterdam were rerouted. 
Pentti hates crowds!  And the train was VERY crowded.

So....instead of a lovely first class trip to Antwerp, we were rerouted onto three different trains, until we arrived in Antwerp, Belgium.  Then took an intercity train to Ghent.

Antwerpen  Station
Belga Queen in Ghent

But we arrived this afternoon and after checking in to our hotel and taking a short rest, we had a lovely dinner at Belga Queen across the canal from our hotel.  It looks like a castle, doesn't it?

Tomorrow we see the city.
