CC left for Paris a few hours after we arrived back in The Hague. L and I lazed around, did laundry, and tried to eat very little.

The next day we left for the little town of Waregem, in the Flanders part of Belgium. Our friends RT and SW invited us to watch horseraces, and we were curious. But first, a quick stop in Brussels at the Delirium Tremens Bar, which boasts of at least 2,000 beers available:

Waregem is a little, pretty, laid-back town. We partied with the locals until 3:00 a.m., slept, then got up the next day ready to watch the races:

Not many great pictures (the Belgians are tall), but it was a festive atmosphere we won't forget.

Next day, it was back to work.
