The local fire
Lubbeek Travel Blog› entry 18 of 25 › view all entries
A fully quiet day, it is grey and cold outside and we are in Lubbeek so not a lot of opportunities.
So, by the
evening, Stan offered to go visit a photo exhibit in Lubeek hall (which was
really lovely, wonderful photos and I so wish I had that talent myself) before
going to the annual fire of the village. It seems that every year around this
time there is a fire, which is most likely organised in commemoration of the
Saint of the village. That was tame though, a bit in accordance to what I said
I walked on the countryside of Lubbeek by midday on a cold autumn day. I really just went randomly and walked from Stan’s parents house and then cut through the farmer’s paths as matter to do some pictures of the autumn craze. The sun on the non-harvested crops was giving really amazing sight.
Once I was back at Stan’s house (he was absent) I organised to meet up with the neighbour of Stan who are HC (hospitality Club) members. They were also pretty much into some international craze, having a student staying over their place. They weren’t fully active on HC (and in Lubbeek it would still be hard) but at least I now gave them the opportunity to put a face to the website and have it be less technical.
Also for today, I am wishing a lovely Remembrance Day!!
remember and find all the poppies. (In Flanders field!)
By Midday, Stan dropped me along the Tiensesteenweg so that I could head down to E40 highway and started to hitch back to Brussels, hitching went well, as usual. Not too long after then I was being dropped not far from Achim’s place and went there, relaxing and watching a movie until he came back from work. Achim had still invited me to stay over, but of course a break in Leuven – Lubbeek gave me the opportunity to do something.
