Back Home in Overijse
We left the protest and went to the swimming pool, which was shut - maybe if we'd stayed we'd have seen the lifeguards going by on a float - so instead, we made do with taking the children to the playground.
An hour later we returned to see the last of the lorries finishing the protest and the arrival of some more decorative wagons of the type seen in a country fayre. The overriding theme had now changed to grapes which were presented by an assortment of children, animals, maidens and toothless gits to the mayor, who received them with a rather comical formality.
While these events enthralled the natives, we slipped away into a calmer quarter where some more tangible entertainment had been placed.
