On the way back from my little excursion to the coast I photographed through the car window the flat country celebrated in Jacques Brel's song "Le Plat Pays". I love this part of Belgium - flat country side with open verdant fields traversed by beautiful canals lined by trees, wonderful also for biking and horse riding. I guess that one of the reasons I like it so much is because of its connection with Jacques Brel. He sang in both French and Dutch.
I think you will enjoy listening to "Le Plat Pays", one of my very favorite Brel songs, here:
