In this picture taken on Thursday, April 17, 2014, a woman cycles past a local pub in Ghent, western Belgium. Thousands of such bars in towns and villages have closed over the past decades, and on top of it, Belgians have stopped drinking like they used to. The Belgian beer federation is now trying to rekindle local faith in the drink with a 'Proud of Belgian Beers' campaign. (AP Photo/Yves Logghe)
