Belgium Introduction; Part B

More image impressions from Belgium: the importance of the Catholic church.
Belgium stayed under the rule of catholic Spain after Holland won independance in 1648.
Below is the very Baroque St Niklaas church in Sint-Niklaas, Flanders, Belgium.

A Belgian gardener harvesting potatoes.

Many potatoes are turned into pommes frites - french fries. Here is a very Belgian frituur.

A rather seedy looking apartment complex on the way from Antwerp southwest to St-Niklaas.
