WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
of October 15. If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
With my friend Chantal and another one from our painting class we visited the exposition Tutankhamun the Egyptian King. Perfect copies of alll the things they had found in his grave were exposed, the originals are in the Museum in Cairo. The exposition has such a lot of success, since February that it had been prolonged til end of November. I will write and show you pictures later.
After the exposition we had a coffee under the Atomium.
The weather was sunny but it is now getting really cold, so we cleaned and covered the garden furniture and put the cushions etc in the garden shed. Kim's tent has to stay outside because even in winter she sometimes sleeps in there ! Crazy cat.
On Sunday Ilona and I wanted to visit the Cave of Spy where a Neanderthal man had been discovered.
After driving around to find the place, which apparently Madame GPS didn't know, we finally stopped at an "Irish Pub" at least that was its name. I bed the owners had never seen an Irish Pub in their whole life. But the food was good and the place lovely. They had a conservatory where we ate, and had a beautiful view on a park.
The caves are supposed to be at the very beginning of the Ardennes and finally we found it after having asked several times, there was no sign !
The place was beautiful and finally we found a way through the woods walked a km and couldn't enter the cave because the way down there was so difficult and dangerous that we didn't dare to slip down eventually on our bottoms !
(I found this picture on internet and I think we haven't missed anything).
Ilona also had her broked toe just healed and still had to be careful. The walk through the woods was wonderful, it still was very green and no sign of "golden" autumn leaves. Amazing for a 16 October !
We were a little tired when we got back from all this fresh air.
