Clash of the Cultures: Why shopping for groceries in Belgium thrills me and annoys me

While reading this, please keep in mind that I'm not trying to argue that Norway is preferable to Belgium in any way. Even if that was possible, I wouldn't do it by writing about grocery stores.

Autumn 2010 arrives in Ghent

A friend tipped me about a supermarket not far from where we live, and today I went there for the first time. Since Bika's bike was vandalized last week, she has to borrow mine to get to work until her own gets out of the shop. This meant I had to walk today, but that only gave me more time to take pictures. Enjoy five snapshots from a clear, cool (10 °C) autumn day in Ghent.
