WEEKEND REVIEW FEB 25

We had the visit of our young friend, and he told us that he is still looking for work ! I think he asks too much, he had a very nice job, very well paid, but he was always on the road so that his marriage broke. But he doesn't give up hope.

I tried out my new GPS and am very happy with it. First I was a little hesitating, I thought it would be difficult, but it is so easy and so clear, I had no problems. So I drove around and put new addresses in, just to get used. It's much better than the Garmin I had before. Now I am ready for my trip to Germany, because without it I couldn't drive !

In the evening we had our Facebook party, from the members of the page "Vivre à Waterloo" (living in Waterloo) It was so nice to meet life again, we had done this before. We were about 50 people from the group and our administrator had booked a Greek Restaurant. We had a group of 3 singers, who performed real good. 



I was with my "teacher" from the painting group (below right) she had such a lot of fun and we danced ! The lady in pink is 85 years old, you should have seen her dancing ! More then Mirella and me !



The food too was excellent, after the third round of tapas I forgot to take pictures.  The rolls were with "foie gras", then salmon, and the fancy looking thing was goat cheese in a kind of chips, but of course it werent't chips ! There were also two main courses, but we didn't eat very much we were so full from all these Greek specialities. Everybody enjoyed the evening very much and we finally went home at 11.30 pm.

Sunday afternoon, I went to  to Villers la Ville



In front of the ruins of the famous Abbey the yearly Carnival procession took place. Unfortunately it was so cold and windy that I just had a look on the costumes but didn't wait for the procession. I took some pictures and  on my returned stopped at Nicole's for a coffee.

I always forget about Carnival here as I am not a big fan. I love to see photos of the one in Venice. The costumes are so beautiful. Happy to hear you enjoyed our weekend.

That FB party was a lot of fun! I could eat small plates and appetizers like that every day instead of a big meal. But somebody else in this house would be unhappy about that I suppose.
