MY WORLD - A little walk through Waterloo


More participants here

A little walk through Waterloo is also part of my world especially when the weather is nice and the sun is shining.

On the terrace of the restaurant or better "Brasserie" called " Les six colonnes" (the 6 columns) people enjoy their meal or just a glass of wine or beer.

If you like Belgian chocolate there are enough stores too

We still have some little vegetable shops which are also selling other stuff, if you don't like to go into a supermarket for your shopping

Another Café or pub, where in the evening you can try your talent as a singer with Karaoke

All very old houses dating from the Waterloo battle time, have been transformed to shops or offices. When I moved to Waterloo 33 years ago, there were still people living in them.

Should you get hungry during your little walk, there is a typical "Friterie" stand where you can buy a bag of belgian "french" fries. (French fries were invented in Belgium !)

Photobucket

The main street was very busy as usual

Another Pub/Brasserie in an old farmhouse, which is called "La Pomme" (the apple) They make very good Hamburgers.

Just in front is the very modern office parc

On my way back this restaurant "Moules à Gogo" (Mussels as you wish) is specialized in mussels as the name says, but they also have other things.

Thank you kindly for dropping by and leaving your comment wishing Bud and me a happy anniversary. It meant a lot to me, truly. Happy Tuesday.

I love quite towns. We live 4Km (2.5 miles) from the downtown. We're lucky that the house we live in is far from the main road. So in a way we are spared from traffic noise and pollution ;-)

I'm hosting next weeks Fun Monday. You can sign up already. :-)

I LOVED taking this little walk with you! You can not even begin to imagine how BORING a walk through MY neighborhood is! Or even if I drove to town and walked through the town... all very boring!

It does have a lot to offer. But I think it must be wonderful to walk through an area filled with history.

Arija said...

A lovely presentation of your town. I am so glad that supermarkets have not spoiled all of Europe. The little corner store is not only more convenient but also a personal interaction between the regular patrons.
Lovely with all the eating ou possibilities and delightful gardens in the residential area.

What a pretty place Waterloo is, Gattina, and the beautiful old buildings. I love the old architecture. I also like the sound of the cafes and pubs you showed us...especially Mussels as you Go. As for Belgian chocolate...I'm drooling!

Jenn said...

Enjoyed the walk through. Love the neighborhood too! And yeah, the main road looks REALLY REALLY busy! :-)
