Benedeluxfra Biking Trip: Day 2

Here is the second of two posts I tried to send from my mobile phone that Blogger didn't like. I then gave up longer posts and made only a couple single-photo posts.

15 June, 2018

Andrew and I were tourists today, covering less than 40 miles. In Sint-Truiden we visited a well-preserved church founded by women in the 15th century. Then in Hasselt we went to the genever museum (genever is the original gin, though it no longer requires juniper berries, and is usually lower in alcohol content). We then tried a more scenic route along a canal, but it was fraught with detours and unmarked construction projects, so we ended up going along the N2 into Maastricht. There we visited a book store in an ancient cathedral.
