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 !)
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.
The residential area before I arrived home again
