A good start : with my teacher's card I got in for free !
|what a good idea for wall decoration...|
|a huge carpet.... knit by one of Flanders' last knitting companies|
|From the 1920ies & I'd wear this one immediately !|
|Hilde Frunt and SIGI (mother and son) designed and knitted these|
|crazy stuff, but sooo original !|
|beautiful socks with knittted flowers|
So by then we were ready for a lunch 'al freso' & enjoyed the sunny day at one of Antwerp's many bistro's.
Here Winnie is a little envious of my gigantic sandwich..... You don't want to see a picture of me with my mouth full of this....
We had some time left over for shopping and Antwerp is a great town for this. All shops are just a XXL size compared to the little dwarf-like shops we seem to have in Oostende....
Inhabitants of Antwerp have this 'air' about them, sometime when you hear them talk it's like they live in New York. People of Antwerp say they live in THE city, and all the rest of Flanders is their parking space....
To be honest, I'd like to live there for a while, just to enjoy the hustle and the bustle of a big town.
We also paid a visit to the 'Lombardia', a very well known bio-food restaurant/shop that is very proud to have Sting and Moby as customers (when they are in Belgium) Check out the website lombardia
There we bought the Ginger Love Tea - invented by a Belgian, a really divine drink !
After another cup of coffee and a piece of low-fat, calorie burning no sugar added double chocolate cake, we were ready for home.
