This whole week I have been busy shaving wall-paper off my walls - a very tedious work that I have been complaing about on my Swedish blog. A good friend of mine, Groddy, helped me with this and also encouraged me to ask for more help. So I did (reluctantly) and my dear friends Rana and Frogga responded positively and gave me help last Thursday and Friday! Thank you so much!!!!!
A somewhat handicapped frog greeted us from the pulpit as we entered the Sint Rombouts-kathedraal (St Rumbold's Cathedral) in Mechelen yesterday. It was a nice and sunny day outside and the four of us (Rana, Brekekekaatje, Li-Rana and myself) took the bikes and went all the way to Mechelen from Leuven along the canal. Very flat and nice! A trip I really recommend.
Here is the joyful trio on tour: Rana, Batty and Ranus (husband of Rana)! We went 10 days to Sweden and arrived home to Belgium yesterday! Here is a short photo show of our trip that can be summarized as follows: "wawa" (=water in the frog language), burial mounds, stinging nettles, bugs, stunning geneological discoveries, lovely meetings with old friends and TV-evenings with more or less weird Swedish films + Jeeves and Wooster!
Stockholm and Uppsala
Norrland: Alnö, Sundsvall and Jämtland
