I see the lights

Last Friday I went to the lichtfestival of Gent. That's eh a festival of light :) This year was the second edition of it, and actually the first time I've heard of it.

It was the most wonderful thing I've ever seen and I'm not exaggerating!
Al ready when we arrived in the centre of the city to eat something, there was a weird, magical atmosphere. We decided to eat outside on the terrace and kept telling each other that it felt like the Revolution (if you know Bobejaanland) or Droomvlucht (if you know de Efteling) or Disneyland (but I've never been there), anyway you get my point. It was amazing.

Unfortunately we didn't had a map so we just followed the mass. And that's why we didn't saw everything, but what we've seen already was definitely impressive.
Untill next year?

And tonight is the last time, take your chance I'd say! :)

PS. I forgot to tell you the best part!
Last year the difference in energy use was barely noticable, and this time it won't be different.
There are used 55 000 LED-lights with each just 20kWh and the blue birds from Maeterlinck (second pic) are even energy-neutralizing!
