Greetings From Belgium

I joined a postcard challenge being hosted by Art and Sole, here http://art-and-sole.blogspot.com/.  For details about the challenge and the inspiration behind it you can click the postcard challenge icon in the right margin.  The basic premise is that two strangers begin a postcard exchange.  Be sure to visit Art and Sole to check out the other wonderful postcards that are being created!

Though this challenge started in January, I am jumping in a month late.  The country serving as inspiration for this weeks postcard is Belgium.  My brother and sister-in-law lived there for two years in Brussels.  I remember them talking about moules et frites.  As well, they brought back Chimay for us.  Soooo, I immediately thought of including those on my postcard.  I started with an antique map and finished with a quote from a song – can you place it?  Here is this, my first installment.  We begin with Brian who is in Brussels.

  1. I used to practice my French with a Dutch Belgian – it’s no wonder no one understands my french when I am in france,
    moule et frites is a good example of the (vive la) differences in these two cultures.

    love your card.
