Bicycles, Beers & Wontons

Yesterday was the first day of the International Beer Festival at Zwevegem. Despite the fact that I was having a dizzy spell, D had managed to convince me that we should cycle there. Having done it once before, and not wanting anyone of us to drink and drive, I agreed. Now that I am better at cycling, the 6-kilometre bike ride was not as daunting and was quite enjoyable. And holy crap, a glass of well-chilled beer can be so ridiculously good when one had to huff and puff to get to the location of the festival.

This afternoon, most of the neighbours will get together for the last speelstraat. I made some wontons in the early afternoon, to be fried up and served when D and I join the drinking later in the day. It is a small gesture on our part. We are not kids haters and definitely can be friendly and generous in our own ways.

Summer is almost over and I suspect that my tenting nights are rather numbered…
