June 2008

This is the view from the Tournai belfry. The wet patch is the Tournai millenium water feature which suddenly springs up out of the pavement, much to the delight of passing children and dogs. You are never quite sure if the medieval looking buildings that fringe the market squares are genuine or not. So much was obliterated in the two wars and often rebuilt in the original style so cleverly that there is little to remind you of the destruction this country has endured.
