MY WORLD - Braine l'Alleud

I had a bad infection at a tooth and therefore had to go to the dentist to get it pulled out. She lives in Braine l'Alleud which is the next little town close to Waterloo, in fact it could count as one city. We even share the Waterloo Lion with them and the battle field.

Dentists are usually poor people and live in little huts, as you can see here. (this is a joke of course !) When I had one tooth less and a sleeping cheek I did a little walk through the town.

Some people were already sitting outside drinking their beer

the streets are quiet narrow and as it was a Monday there were not many people around

the market place with a fountain which was on strike

Flowers to buy

and people sitting on a bank chatting. Spring has finally arrived !

A very old advertising pillar survived

the church tower

another little street with a lot of restaurants

The city hall

and an old bistro

After my little walk my cheek started to hurt and I quickly returned home. My World was the dentist today !

Dentist ate poor? Hmm interesting. The streets and such seem so narrow. Beautiful city hall. Thanks for sharing :)

You are such a brave lady; I am terrified of dentists and pain.
Dentist's house looks big.

I'm glad you survived the dentist. I hate them!

Hope you are feeling well now. Thanks for the tour of this unknown part of Belgium. Waterloo still sounds so very Dutch. They never came up with a french name for it did they?

Very brave of you to wander around after having your tooth pulled - I'd go home and sulk. Very pretty town though.

Looks like a picturesque part of town! Hope the pain soon goes away.

We passed it on our way to Waterloo and the "butte du lion", I liked the little city so very much!
I posted about our visit to Dinant today in my blog.

That looks like a very lovely town. Did you mean what you said about dentists being poor? The "hut" doesn't look so small actually. In my country dentists are mostly very rich. I hope your tooth is feeling better soon.

Hi Gattina! It's sad that you had to have one tooth left for us to see the wonderful shots of Braine l'Alleud, but thee is always a price to pay for beauty.... ;))

The Mayan ruins of Tulum are at Blogtrotter 2 for you to enjoy. Have a great week!!

Seems like a nice little town to me. Empty but nice - maybe they all did hide for the dentist not to find them? *giggles*
