Our spooky Jack-o'-lantern wishes you a Happy Halloween. This also happens to be my 13th post this month. How scary is that?

A view of the St Laurent military hospital from the top of the Ferris wheel. The building used to be a Benedictine Abbey, founded in 1026. It was abandoned by the monks after the French revolution and became a military complex for the French, Dutch and finally Belgian armies.

A couple of views of the October Fair, seen from the top of the Ferris wheel. I love the fair, it's crowded and noisy but it's great fun. What's more, there's plenty of food and snacks on offer, including the lacquement, a local waffle variant that is totally sinful and exquisitely decadent.

The renovation of the Royal Walloon Opera building is becoming increasingly monstrous. After sticking a cube on top of the neoclassical roof, they now decorated said cube with randomly arranged horizontal wooden beams that make me think of pre-crisis interior design TV programmes. What next? a water feature?
