One of my favorite things in this world is to go to Le Topaz restaurant in Maisières-Mons. It is like going to relatives house. It's a small mom and pop place run by the nicest family I have ever met in my life. You go there and Mr. Dennis greats...

There is nothing like roaming your own town with a camera. You can do it without a camera but with one, you are more open to looking around and staring at gargoyles on the collegiale, soccer stickers stuck on the back of road signs and trees...

When we moved to Belgium we lived, for three weeks, right next to the Waux-Hall park in downtown Mons. Designed by landscape architect Louis Fuchs, the park Waux-Hall hosts a remarkable plant collection and massive old trees, it features lawns...

Mons may not be as spectacular as Brussels or other cities in Belgium but it is very charming and worth a visit. The Grand Place is riddled with cafes, there are festivals all the time so even though it's small it offers lots of fun. Together with...

A friterie is to a Belgian is what McDonalds is to an American! Scattered around the country you often come across these friteries which sell as they main item "frites". They're also called "pommes frites" since they are made of potatoes. Just...

The Grand Place of Mons is dominated by two things: beautiful architecture and restaurants. There are restaurants all around the square, for whatever craving you have and for all pockets. I love going to the Grand Place, have a nice meal and then...

Every year in the merry month of May you can find me in the main square in Mons partaking in the annual beerfest. Well, I say annual but really they tend to have impromptu beerfests there and about from time to time as well. Mons is in the south...

This year, my favorite stand at the Chocolate Fest in Mons, it's the coffee and tea stand. They sell coffee from Peru, Colombia, Kenya, to name a few and the smell is unbelievable.

If I had to pick what I thought was the Belgian national dish, it would have to be "le sandwich". Give a Belgian a baguette (French bread) and throw meat and cheese and lettuce or really anything on it, and you have one happy Belgian. In Mons...
