WEEKLY WINNERS - A Belgian village
More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners
Yesterday was May Day or Labour day here in Belgium. Everywhere along the roads or streets people had put up little stands to sell Lillies of the Valley. It is the use to give a little bouquet often combined with a red rose to family and friends.
It is often done by students to earn a little money
My little excursion took me to Ittre which is a little town or more a village in the french part of Belgium.
all important houses are around the church as it is in all villages
The church, quite big for such a small place
and the inside quite special
around the church was a little way, which were used by a cat. Of course she disappeared when I approached.
The local café or tavern, where the first guests had their beer
Ittre is well known because of his theatre. It is located in an old farm and the scene is in the barn. There is also a restaurant in it, so you can eat first and then see the play or have your supper later.
The back of the Theatre
Besides is an old blacksmith which has been transformed into a museum showing the very old tools.
and of course there also is a castle where some noble family is still living. I had dared to put my feet on the property and was immediately asked to leave, but I was allowed to take some pictures of this beautiful place.
