trip!




Here are a few snaps of my trip to France (actually the pics are taken in Brussels, although I guess you wouldn't know from looking...) Can you spot Tintin? Brussels was cool, but actually we only ended up spending about an hour in the actual city itself... We had to waste the whole morning in MiniEurope (woo) waiting for our tour guides. I spent most of our free half hour looking for decent frites au mayonnaise, unsuccessfully (they were rubbish). Should've got a waffle instead! However, during our second trip into Belgium (Ypres) we did manage to get some decent chips!

We also got to visit Flanders and some war cemeteries. Very touching indeed, although hard to contemplate everything having to escort 39 kids around. Especially moving was the cemetery where John McCrae was based and his poem 'In Flanders' Fields'.

I'll write more later and try to make it sound less like I'm writing a postcard.

Wow, that Tintin wall painting is really good! I like the little Snowy peering over the edge.

7:40 actually. Already written 2,000 words (I'm kind of rushing this!) but not even half way though yet...) I'm listening to The Flaming Lips though - I love them!!

I've been listening to Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots album - I really like the first song, Fight Test. What other Flaming Lips do you have?
