The richest people of Belgium

What I like with the West Flanders VT meetings is that they take me to places where I have never been. OK, I knew all industrial areas around Kortrijk but nothing from the historical centre.

Thank you Filip, Jean-Pierre and Patje (with his wonderful West Flemish accent) for the perfect organization (as usual) of this meeting.

We Belgians know that the people of Kortrijk and West Flanders are among the richest in Belgium. I therefore wondered if this car (a Packard) parked in front of the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk belongs to Filip, Jean-Pierre or Patje?

Feeling a bit lazy, my reviews on Kortrijk will be of the extra light type.

    The Kortrijk museum sounds interesting. You have done a fine job of describing the town and its sties. Maybe you should have taken that Packard home with you.

    I think perhaps if I ever make a return visit to Flanders Kortrijk will be on the itinerary. I could easily spend a couple of days exploring here..Thank you for the "Virtual Tour"

    Nice place for a VT Meet = I would be interested in the history of Flanders & the Golden Spurs which I have heard of a little but you have enlightened me further!

    Too bad the Groeninge monument did not live up to your childhood imagination of the historical novel. The Kortrijk 1302 museum sounds very informative, however. I love the word Schouwburg for Theater.

    Quelle rapidité sur l'événement ! Et je dois dire que le brun d'humour te vas au moins aussi bien que l'?il du connaisseur culturel averti qu'on retrouve habituellement au sein de tes pages. Compliments et sans rancunes, Jean-Pierre
