The Waasland is the home of Reynard the fox. “Of Reynard the fox” is an animal epos which is a satire on the medieval society and it is written well (a milestone in the Middle Dutch literature). Not only the different social classes (the clergy, the aristocracy, the peasants, …) are denounced , but also the medieval literature itself.
It is all a VERY long time ago (ca. 1260), but the towns of the Waasland are still under the spell of it. 13 towns (Axel, Beveren (Kieldrecht), Destelbergen, Hulst, Kruibeke, Lochristi, Lokeren, Moerbeke, St.-Gillis-Waas, St.-Niklaas, Stekene, Temse, Waasmunster ) have a common project to keep the story alive.

I can count the times that I dare to go for a drink in a pub on my own on my one hand. But after my long walk yesterday, I really got cold. The Dansing Chocola or The holy house (Het heilig huisje) ? (both on the picture with the holy figures) The first seems a bit more inviting. Inside it is cozy and warm. There is a light smell of toilets (let's ignore that). I order a cup of tea : I get a mug (ancient too) with a crack in it from the top to the bottom and it is so convincing that I expect the hot water to be streaming out of the cup at the back, but it isn’t : a layer of glazing keeps the drink in the mug. I sip at my tea on my own and look around a bit. The feather lights spread warm colors. People are friendly talking with each other. Yes, this is a cozy place, but I wished I wasn’t alone.
endless color combinations : beautiful !
I once was in an aquarium club and asked members what they did when they had too much fish. Never got an answer.
So, when my daughters have too much fish (guppies multiply faster than a copier can copy, so to speak), they hang notes (and so far always with success) : free guppies in nice colors, you can come and pick them up (Melsele) ! Interested ? Mail me.
A very pleasant wood is ‘de Clingse Bossen’ , just past the border in the

It was because of a group of about 20 Japanese tourists that were all looking up to the tower and making pictures, that I realized how really impressive this building is.
The name in English is much easier than the one we have. The French have it in their own language too : Cathédral St. Sauveur.
For us it is : St.Salvator’s kathedraal. Yes, we Flemings are supposed to understand latin as well as many other languages.
