WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

When life is normal and not hit by a vicious virus which looks in the whole  world, each year we have a very nice fest on the grounds of the farm "Mont St. Jean"

On 18 June 1815, the Duke of Wellington used Mont-Saint-Jean Farm as a field hospital in the very centre of the battlefield of Waterloo. Fortunately people usually only know the farm and not necessaryly its history.

Here are a few pictures from the yearly festivities.
