  BELGIUM - Gent
BOSKO 2008-09-01 23:44:20
From Paris we caught a train to Brussels, and another straight to Gent, where we were met by REMCO - otherwise known as UKULELEZAZA

Remco is one of the masters of right hand technique, and we felt very lucky to be invited to stay and hang out for a few days...
We recorded a Safari Video, sampled many excellent Belgium beers, saw Remco play ukulele and plectrum banjo in the band LES MECS DU NORD, and generally had a great time...

it so happened that the GENT FESTIVAL was on at the same time, and i've heard that last year 1.5 million people attended, and i wouldn't be surprised - people were everywhere!
Remco often amused himself and others by playing ukulele from his window overlooking a pedestrian street right in the old centre of town...
