I live in Waterloo/Belgium, a small town but known all over the world. 53 other cities named after "my" Waterloo also exists all over the world. In the Waterloo Museum is a map where you can see the location of the other Waterloos.
Of course the most important thing in Waterloo is the battle field where Napoleon lost his battle against other European countries.
The Waterloo Lion sitting in the middle of the battle field and looks over to the UK.
Each year in June a reconstitution of the battle is made in Waterloo and soldiers from the participating countries are wearing the costumes of this epoch
Here are the Frenchs
The Panorama where you can see the battle scenes
and a little café just in front of the Lion.
There are many tourists from all over the world who visit this place all around the year.
Sometimes on sunny days I go there, have a drink and watch the tourists. I then feel on holidays!
If you want to know more about the battle reconstitution go here Waterloo, reconsititution of the battle (Belgium) which I published on my travel blog.
