MY WORLD - Waterloo and Braine l'Alleud


more participants here

It's so stormy outside that it is impossible to visit something more interesting so before I was blown away I took these pictures while I was shopping in Waterloo and Braine.



the City hall



little shopping streets



The main church where wounded soldiers were brought in during the Waterloo battle



An English shop, with only English products



The little neighbor town Braine l'Alleud



and the old city hall



with these old doors (the main entrance had been modernized)



and if you want to try all sorts of tea this is the place !

Nice way to spend time in some outdoors while shopping. I find taking photos something interesting to do, whenever shopping gets too bored or I have to wait a long time.

Those are some lovely photos. Photography had always been a pleasure for me. Because we can capture every beautiful moments and put what we like in frames according to the world we see.

Waterloo looks a beautiful town!!! C'est très joli les bâtiments avec les briques rouges! Mais dis dont tu as bravé la tempête pour le blog!!! C 'est formidable! Ici le soleil s'est caché, alors qu'hier c'était le printemps! Qu'importe le fonctionnaire de l'assainissement m'a envoyé par mail le dernier papier qui nous manquait pour la vente de jeudi!!!!

Braine l'Alleud looks very pretty and Waterlo must be very interesting with all the history associated with the battle.
