MY WORLD - Braine l'Alleud market
more participants here
I only discovered recently that there is a market in Braine l'Alleud, which is the next door village or now rather a little town. The battle of Waterloo took also place in the village of Braine-l'Alleud,where the Prussians were expected to reinforce the battle against Napoleon and his army. The Waterloo Lion is also more located towards Braine l'Alleud.
But today I only went there because the sun was shining and I needed some fresh air and not a battle, unfortunately it was very cold. Nevertheless there were many people
Here the market starts with a rather strange "modern art" sculpture, I really don't know what it should represent because I only see piled up cobble stones. Please feel free to analyse this artwork in your own interpretation, one thing is for sure, it wasn't a truck which lost the stones.
There is nearly everything to buy, from flowers and vegetables to handbags
around the city hall it continues
This was my favorite market visitor, he was enormous but very friendly
Choose a handbag, jeans or sweaters and when you are hungry you can have hamburgers or hot sausages.
For those who like it rather sweet there are the famous Belgian wafels freshly made in front of you
A lot of choice for cheese, also presented in a very cute way
A couple from Peru sold beautiful handknitted pullovers, bonnets or cardigans, for all ages.
I didn't buy anything besides the Tartiflette I mentioned in my yesterday's post.
When I came home I was joyfully greeted by a happy Arthur, he probably thought I'll bring him some special treats. Love always goes through the stomac !
