Root and Branch

Something I can tell you - there are more than 17,000 trees in the Parc de Woluwé.  I haven't counted them but someone has, and every tree has a number on it.  I'm afraid that's all I can tell you today.  Brussels is a city of roadworks and construction - everywhere there are cranes, holes, hi-viz chaps.  This weekend is mainly about some quiet reconstruction for me.  This will not beat me. 


  1. From my experience they certainly love their roadworks in Belgium. Wegomlegging is one of the few words of Flemish I know, learnt through necessity and even now incorporated into (English) conversation between me and my then travelling companion!

    Probably sounds a bit random, but I think the point I'm trying to make is that there's always a way out the other side, sometimes takes a wee while to find it, but we always get there in the end.

  2. Brussels is the only place that our Sat Nav has completely let us down because it couldn't cope with the roadworks (and that was 4 years ago) . Hope your own reconstruction is speedier.
