31st December 2011 – I was in Ghent in he morning to visit a friend. He owns the Ladoga, an old kempenaar of 65 meters. While I were there, he asked me to start his little Lister engine. Something went wrong and while turning, I hit myself badly with the hand crank handle… After the hospital visit, it realized I was very happy. A little fracture in the nose and a swollen face. I still had all my teeth
The evening was much better, celebrating with the neighbours in Bruges. A young couple were passing by and joined us!
