Westerlo is a nearby town that is bigger than Blauberg and has some good restaurants, shops and cafes. Today also happened to be market day. So Nikoline and I spent the morning wandering around the Westerlo market and then took in the other Westerlo hot spots.
The Westerlo market is where a lot of people do their shopping - you can buy everything there from apples to underwear to mittens to cigarettes to fresh fish to barbecued chicken to coffee. I took a few photos so you can get an idea of the range of items for sale at the market. It makes for a pleasant morning of wandering around looking at the goods for sale. It is also very social with lots of people crowded into the cafes along the streets.
So this gives you a "taste" of the Westerlo market. After wandering around for a while, we hit up the Cafe Libro for some tea and hot choccolate. After this we went to 4 Bikes to look at nice bikes and cool cycling clothing. Next up was the famous second hand book store to see if there were any deals on books. Finally we stopped at Lizzy's for some tasty salads to have with supper tonight.
Yes, a pretty darn good morning. It was very nice to be out and about. I walked slowly and we took our time.
In other news, I've started knitting again. Nikoline wanted to learn so I decided to get back into the knitting game as well. I'm knitting a cowl (though I only have straight needles - so I'll have to do some sewing at the end).
