    Well, we didn't come across Colin Farrell, but these ladies seemed to have a price on their head:

    Hardly surprising, really, with characters like this around:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lightmancer/6565388159/" title="Bruges Four Horsemen 3 by RangefinderGeneral, on Flickr">"768" height="1024" alt="Bruges Four Horsemen 3"></a>

    It was hard to see the wood for the trees:

    ...and sometimes I felt as if I was talking to a brick wall:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lightmancer/6565289253/" title="Bruges Window 1 by RangefinderGeneral, on Flickr">"768" height="1024" alt="Bruges Window 1"></a>

    At least I didn't lose my head, like poor old Salvador:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lightmancer/6565222463/" title="Bruges Dali 1 by RangefinderGeneral, on Flickr">"728" height="1024" alt="Bruges Dali 1"></a>

    Or get framed like David:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lightmancer/6565294183/" title="Bruges Beckham 1 by RangefinderGeneral, on Flickr">"691" height="1024" alt="Bruges Beckham 1"></a>

    My story has a happy ending though - it's Christmas after all...

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lightmancer/6565266651/" title="Bruges Belfort 2 by RangefinderGeneral, on Flickr">"667" height="1024" alt="Bruges Belfort 2"></a>
