(B)Menen-(F)Halluin.



On the picture below you can see irregularity of border line. I needed some time there to find out in which country I was.








This picture has been taken from the same place, but onto different direction.


I moved a little. Previously I stayed where the lady with pushchair is.


Menen.


Halluin.






Coming back to Belgium.


Borderline.


Drunk Frenchmen leaving Belgium. They really wanted to be admired by SSC forumers, I have no idea why


Pralines, of course.
