Binche, Belgium (Jan 1, 2007)

*2007*
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! May the next be even better than the last.
Part of the Church in Binche, my home town in Belgium.

The rest of the church.

The walls (les ramparts) that surround the old part of Binche were built in the 1500s (I think) when Marie of Hungarie was living in the castle here.

My mother's old elementary school. She was, at the time, the only girl attending an all-boys school. Here, she perfected her shin kicks and punches!

A statue of the Gille de Binche- the town's claim to fame. People dress as Gilles with ostrich feather hats and a bucket of blood oranges during the carnival after Mardis Gras.
