Another terraced photo

One more photo in the terraced house series. In answer to a question on the previous post, I think that there's a mixture of housing styles. Some of the buildings have been converted to flats, others are family houses. Nevertheless, the number of families living in Liège has decreased significantly over the last 30-40 years.

The crane working on the renovation of the old public swimming pool at rest.

Le Tour des Bouchons

The Tour de France has come and gone. It was great but it caused some significant chaos in the city. This photo is an example of traffic jams the day before the Prologue.
