Planning A Holiday

Ailz and Ruth are in the front room planning a holiday in Belgium. For them the planning is part of the fun. I think planning holidays is an invitation to the gods to come up with obstacles- and never really believe I'm going away until I'm there- so I'm keeping my distance. Also I've been cooking lunch.

I've consulted the atlas. Belgium is a very small country covered in battlefields- which is chiefly famous for not producing anyone famous- which isn't really fair because I can think of three: Georges Simenon, Rene Magritte and Georges Brassens.
