A bit of Italy in Diest

After a leisurely stroll through the town of Diest, my friends and I ended up in Giusto Gusto and savoured the mouthwatering cuisine of chef and owner Antonio. It was early and we were the first and only customers. It was as if we were transported in time and location; we instantaneously felt on  holiday in Italy, one of our favourite destinations anyway, where the simplest of things tastes heavenly.
I can only recommend this place and vouch that you will not regret hopping in.

K. Zeppos in Antwerp

This bar/restaurant K. Zeppos on Antwerps's Vleminckveld is named after a Belgian TV series, very popular in the 60's.
I thought that the combination of the plants in the window and the reflection of the square with its wide inviting terrace would make a good photo. The waiter thought differently and offered to be a model, while his  colleague was working away struggling balancing dirty glasses on the terrace. 
I promised the waiter a bit of pub on TiB in exchange for his unsolicited cooperation.

National holiday by guest photographer (I)

As I was not around on July 21, the national holiday in Belgium, I invited my friend Els Hattink (photographer and painter) whom I wrote about a few times in the past, to share her impression to fill the void.

Saint Bernard and Icecream

Saint Bernard dogs adore ice cream. Pictures taken near the Abbey of Averbode, where ice cream is as famous as the Abbey, as I will explain in one of my next posts.

Wedding guest

The girl, totally oblivious to the world around her, was a guest at an absolutely wonderful wedding cocktail last Sunday. She presented me with a movie set-like photo op.
