Second Wild West Flanders Meeting

A big thank you for the splendid organisation to Filip, Patje & JP.
It was a great meeting !!

Take a look at my meeting photos:
Second Wild West Flanders Meeting

My Kortrijk page will be updated a bit later ;-)


In the beginning of July, I was with some friends in Ypres to participate in the Nocturnes 2000.
This is a "theatre walk" through the city of Ypres.
The route led along several theatrical performances on historical locations.
The scenes portrayed the history of the town through the centuries.

So we saw scenes about:
The ups and downs of a cloth merchant.
The life of the rich & poor in mediaeval times
The life of a stonemason
The inquisition.
Life in the days of Dutch, French & Spanish rule in Flanders.
The master builder of the fortress
The Great War.....

More info & pics will be put under "Off the beaten path" and the travelogue at the right about Nocturnes2000.

The walk started at 7 p.m.
So we decided to pay a visit to Kortrijk and Ypres first.
The results of that daytrip you'll see in the following "must see activities".

We had a great day, even though it was raining almost the whole day.
Can you imagine how difficult it is to take pictures in the rain, without ruining your camera?
So many many thanks to my kind assistant for carrying my umbrella while I was taking snaps ;-)))))

Bedankt Luc ;-)))

Believe it or not, these pictures were really taken in July (=summer) although it looks more like March or November.
But then again, this is typical Belgian weather!

    I was in Kortrijk & Ypres 3 years ago at the same seminar that this year took me to Mechelen. Both lovely cities but unfortunately I didn't get to hear the Last Post played.
