    I commend you for mentioning the carillon and putting up a photo! Enjoyed your page, thanks.

    The statue and the liquid indeed symbolise a student and beer. At the statue can be read (in Latin): "Wanneer het beer is uit de kan, de wijsheid is in de man", roughly translated this means "when the beer is out of the cup, the wisdom is in the man"

    GREAT page! Wow, you've put Leuven on the travelmap for me! The city looks great! The town Hall is something I would love to see with my own eyes, beautiful! Loved the pictures of the VT-meeting as well :-))
