WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
of September 17. If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
This weekend there was again a big folklore festival, this time on and around the Grand' Place in Brussels.
Of course there were many people and tourists and everybody had a lot of fun, despite the rather cool weather. But dancing warms up !
Before I returned home I went to this very posh looking restroom, acquarium, mirrors and dim lights which made say an eldery woman " I can't see anything, there is not enough light, it looks like a brothel here and I am too old for that !" We all laughed.
and the bar "Le cercueil" (the coffin) which I knew from my 20th is still there even with a summer promotion. Inside the tables are coffins, and you drink out of skulls. I asked myself if the skeleton was still the same.
Sunday was the "Day without cars" in Brussels. Only owners (like doctors) with a special permission were allowed to use their cars and taxi drivers. Otherwise only buses, trams and subways and on this day everybody could ride for free ! People used the boulevards for roller skating, biking, walking or just dancing around ! I went to the midi market to do some shopping. The trains were packed too ! In the afternoon a friend from my painting group came for a cup of tea, she wanted to see our new front garden to give her some ideas for hers.
