We are in the land of old traditions.
The hand made lace is choreographed bobbin work. A dying art. As technology and distraction infiltrate this country fewer and fewer young people invest the time in learning this art. It takes skill and focus. The results are lovely.
Beer of many flavors and alcohol contents. The country of the original IPA. Travelers are warned to go easy on their brews! This is not a Budweiser or
Coors kind of country!
Chocolate is in all forms. I think the Belgians think they invented chocolate. They may have but I don't have Internet to check! But their candies are soft and easy albeit rich in flavor. Some delicacies combine chocolates with the usual suspects peanut butter, cherries and nuts. Then there are the others which offer asparagus, tobacco, and hemp for the adventurous choc-o-holic.
I find it perplexing that we are given Snickers and Twix bars for lunch treats?
C'mon...you invented chocolate!
