Tongeren

Sunday (10/12) was the most beautiful fall day I have ever experienced in Brussels. I cannot even begin to write about how gorgeous it was.
We started out going to Tongeren. It is an hour drive west from Brussels. Why did we go there…I get my new issue of National Geographic Traveler and they were talking about the antiekmarkt. (antique market). They mentioned that it is Belgium’s oldest city, founded by Julius Caesar’s legions 2,000 years ago.
The people in the city were extremely nice, not to mention we met a nice couple from the Netherlands. I would like to go back and see the site with a little more shopping.

Here are some photos from our day...

I loved these titles but not enough for a back splash in a remolded kitchen when we get home
I haven't had time to translate this - but it looks very interesting what I can understand

Outdoor lighting?

Looks like a fun place to walk around in. Wouldn't it be great if the lights in the trees could be wired for outdoors? Mom

We did buy a chandlier - for my dressing room some day. Or you know i would like to put in the trees like they had the lights hanging...that just put Joe over the edge cause he knows i will make him try that for one of our parties.
