I must confess I didn’t come back to Belgium
only to see some of the nice places of my own country on this world trip. To be honest … I longed for some fine Belgian chocolate after being for more than two years away from home.
I have been on the five continents now, and had some good beers outsides Belgium
(the beer in Prague
was excellent!), but nowhere in the world you find these fine chocolates as in Belgium … and in Ypres it’s full of excellent chocolate shops (not only for all the tourists from all over the world visiting Ypres but also for chocolate-addicted rats like me).
Ypres and its surroundings is a chocolate lover’s paradise … so I could not resist buying some and, although we rats are not the cat’s best friends, I opted for some cat shaped chocolates as the cat is the symbol of Ypres
, well known for it’s yearly Kattenstoet
or Cats Parade.
