hence i had to take the challenge and with my good friend and fellow vter radhika, we ventured out on a 40km bike ride
it was an experience which i think i might do again but with a padded seat and ear muffs..
padded seat for the cycle and earmuffs to save the ears from the fellow vters constant mutterings.. ;)

St. Gertrudis church
The St. Getrudis is the major church of the town. After a first church was built in the 13th century, several attempts have been made to build a bigger church. The current church roughly dates from 1470. Originally a basilica, in 1750-1752 the clerestory was removed, turning the church into a pseudo-basilica. In the same period the lantern on top of the tower was built. The church was one of the last churches stolen by the protestants to return to its rightful owners, as the protestants continued to use it until 1966. During the big restoration that followed a fire destroyed the interior and the roof. The catholics had to wait until 1987 before they could finally use the church.
It has become a tradition every year with carnaval to dress up the tower.
In june Pieter (floss1) and Raewyn visited my hometown. We made a citywalk. This picture is made by the goat. The goat is important with the carnival: every year when the carnaval starts at november the 11th all the people come together by this little statue.
