July 2008

This is Geraardsbergen, the last Flemish town before we cross the border into Walloon again and the Dender becomes the canal Blaton-Ath.
It claims to have an older 'pissing boy' statue than Brussels.Brussels says "non".They argue still, a small example among many in the continuing rancour between the two parts of Belgium.
This town is on the Tour de France route. They have to climb the 'Muur', a steep, cobbled road behind the town which we puffed and panted our way up with Woody and pitied the cyclists.
