Sunny Schaerbeek

The day before BEM Day 2018 (see previous post), we went to the BEM office in Schaerbeek (Brussels) to pick up the stand and representation material. It was a beautiful day and it was Wednesday afternoon, which means no school. So we spent a few hours in the Josaphat Park at a walking distance from the BEM office.

Josaphat Park is a public park located in the municipality of Schaerbeek in Brussels.

It was inaugurated bu King Leopold II of Belgium in 1904. Its name comes from the resemblance with the Valley of Josaphat in the Holy Land, noted by a pilgrim back from Palestine in 1574. The park is divided in various areas such as a stadium, a big meadow, playgrounds, archery range, a little zoo, a farm with donkeys,…

In the three years I worked daily at the office I never set a foot in this park. What a pity, it’s so lovely. And we didn’t see much that day.  There’s a lot more waiting for us the next time we go to Schaerbeek.

At lunch time, we had lunch at the Brasserie de Lalaing, just outside the parkDefinitely a good choice!
