Belgian Week

The USA have their 4th of July, France has its ‘14 juillet’ and we have our ‘21 juillet’: the Belgian ‘Fête Nationale’. In view of this upcoming yearly event, and after spending a few days in the ‘Belgian Provence’, I thought this would be a good time to write some posts about my home country.

So, if you don’t mind, I 'll tell you about:

Torgny, the utmost southern village of Belgium. French Lorraine is just across the valley.

The town of Bastogne and the Battle of the Bulge during WWII.

Our favourite hotel in Habay-La-Neuve and its fabulous restaurant.

‘La Ferme des Sanglochons’, a cosy tavern, serving an unusual kind of meat.

… but not necessarily in that order. By the end of next week, life will return to the usual with more stories about France.
