ABC WEDNESDAY - W




= Waterloo

That's an easy letter for me ! I live in Waterloo, the historical one where Napoleon lost his battle.

Last weekend was the reconstitution of the battle





seats around the battle field



and the Wellington Café with a few soldiers !

What else could the café be called? :-)

It looks like a peaceful place, though.

Re-enactments are always a fascinating way to bring history to life. Thanks for sharing pics of such a historic place. Also, thanks for popping over to my place. I love seeing new faces!

Wow, it must have been quite an event! It must be strange living in a place where such a historical event took place, forgetting about it for most of the year, till this happens!

people not so keen to reenact the battle?
