Full English breakfast to start the day.... Marie H over and we drove to Rouge Cloître in Auderghem to continue the exploration of Brussels's greenitude whilst the weather forgets it's Belgian. Rouge-Cloître is apparently quite historic - with an 18th century abbey, an old priory farm, a miller's house, stables converted into artist's studios (not a bad spot!)... the domain is part of the forêt de soignes, has five ponds, a large section of forest and is worth checking out. We completely failed to follow the walk we were supposed to be on but I don't suppose it mattered too much. I was told today (by a clearly unreformable urbanite) that I was posting "too much boring nature stuff"... So I'm meshing it with a human today, hope that's good enough.
