Each Friday evening during summer time Waterloo people gather in our park for a drink and snacks. Just behind me was this cute little dog !
Linking to AWWW MONDAYS
It was a busy weekend in Waterloo (Belgium). There was street sale for the shops the Saturday
and the center was packed with people looking for a bargain. I didn't go I just went through by car and could take pictures because we moved like snails. I didn't need anything and was not in the mood to buy something either.
Instead I went to Myriam to talk about our Painting's class reorganization and especially publicity, we would need a few new members, sad to say, but some died and some were too old to continue. It was still very hot 30° !
In the evening we all went to the Waterloo "Apero" it was a little cooler and there were quite a lot of people, I had bought a camping chair so I didn't have to look for a deckchair, there were a lot but apparently not enough. We had a real nice time and as usual I ate my portion of Belgian chips, which are especially good here.
Over the night we had a thunderstorm and the temperatures dropped by 10° ! It was cold !! At least I had the feeling. In the morning I did my blog stuff and in the afternoon I went to the second part of the street sales and this time also other events.
A big surprise ! A Venitian costume show went through the main street, and several orchestras in different costumes. Myriam, Ilona and I found a nice place on the street in front of an Italian restaurant and we could watch the whole show !
Suddenly a man who sat in front of me called me and showed me the orchestra who started to play a very famous Italian song. I was surprised that they sang in Italian, but then the man told me that it was for me ! Yes, they played for me. And I still don't know why ! But I was very happy !
and then we saw these men and women or couples in these beautiful Venetian costumes walking down the street ! It was a very cheerful atmosphere and everybody enjoyed our city fest very much !
