Decided to stay back. While having coffee watched the beginning of a half-marathon race near the town centre. Later, visited Tyne Cot - largest war cemetery in Europe near Zonnebeke. About 11kms from Ieper. Had lunch while watching people at a street fair in Zonnebeke. Back to town centre and visited the In Flanders Field Museum. Had a local beer called Omer (8% strong blonde beer) - was bitter and sweet. Was great!
