The Travelled Monkey - Rounding the bend
While driving in the Belgian countryside this weekend, we crossed paths with a road race that was happening in the area. Here's the leader, with a peloton of about a hundred other cyclists tight on his heels.

Skol bus

Pic of the week

The Travelled Monkey - Skol bus
An American school bus used to bring union members to Brussels this week during the national rally. There were thousands of marchers and, as you can see, they like their beer. The train strikes this week also slowed down travel quite a bit around the country, and it looks like they will continue into next week. Even the teachers at my daughters school are striking on Tuesday. Well guys, skol!
