To mkamionka: Further explanation

Thank you Mariusz,


I admit that the word 'also' was put in the wrong place in my sentence.
This because of a wrong translation from my language.
I have corrected my sentence grammatically. The...

Hi Gert and Malgo,


In the hair salon where I get my hair cut, an Armenian lady and a Christian Turkish lady work, both of whom came to Belgium long ago and who speak Dutch very well.

To emka: Alexandre's site

Thank you Malgo,


I think Alexandre must have spent a lot of time on developping the site.
He's still very busy with it.
I think it's a great achievement.

Thank you Jean,


The corner of shadow you see is that of the tower of the Sint-Niklaas Church from which you have a beautiful view of the centre of Veurne.

This after climbing 214 stairs :)

Hi Gy,

I know that Costantino, who sometimes visits his daughter in Luxembourg, goes to Dinant from there.

But it seems to me most curious that someone travelling in the Grand Duchy should have...

Hi Gy,

I do think it is the fate of the man.
Not his faith.

I don't know the word 'fait', except in French, but that could be just me.

Kind regards,

To ikeharel: Another gallery

Thank you Ike,


Such situations exist in India.
But I don't have such a picture in my gallery.
You must have seen it in someone else's gallery.

Thank you Gy,


Of course I'd like that this site will exist and function for many more years.

However, the functioning leaves a lot to be desired compared to what it once was.
The defects are...

Hi Mariusz,


I thought so but wasn't sure. That's why I added an explanatory note.

I can imagine that people wonder why the Dutch built a citadel in Belgium. That is why I first added the...

To holmertz: Wild boar

Thank you Gert,


I think the dead animal you see is a wild boar.
There are many of these animals in the forests of the south of Belgium.
They are now a protected species.

Thank you Luis,


Maybe the photo is a bit misleading.
There is no beach in Dinant. The city is not located on the sea, but on the river Meuse.

This river has had a very low water level since...
