BELGIUM – In a region of pleasant, rolling hills to the south west of Brussels, a few kilometers south of the border between Dutch and French-speaking Belgium, lies the village of Rebecq. It is a surprisingly pleasant place, which is why my dad and I have often gone for a walk there. These pictures were taken on one of these walks, on 2012-06-02. Posted on 2020-04-20
