Due to the Coronavirus lockdown, I am prisoner of my house and have to dig in my memories and the related photos.  I stumbled over these Alpaca pictures I had taken in a farm near Brussels, where on an excursion we had stopped for lunch in the annexed restaurant.

The Belgians, especially the older generation (like mine) love to sit at table for hours and eat several courses and in between there was always a long time to wait. I had got used to this when I was younger, but now I want to see and discover things and not fill in my stomach for hours. So between the main course and the desert I went outside across the fields to the alpacas which were grazing there.

When they saw me they probably thought I would bring them something, but unfortunately I didn't have anything. They were so adorable and their faces made me laugh, I thought these a anti-depressive animals, it makes even the worst negative person smile.

I took some pictures and then reluctantly returned to the restaurant, where they were just busy to let down with a string a huge cake with burning candles, which landed in the middle of the table. I missed the show, but I prefered the alpaca pictures to the burning cake !

The very first time in my life,  I saw alpacas was in England, when we drove by a farm. I asked my friend to stop the car, because I had never seen such cute animals, which I first thought to be llamas. My friend explained to me that no these were alpacas they are smaller. They have such funny faces as if they would always smile !

Alpacas are so adorable and they make us smile indeed!
I love both alpacas and llamas but often mistake one for the other :-)

Definitely cuter than llamas.

I believe they don't spit as much as lamas either!
