Belgium is a favourite so far! The town is beautiful - feels like we're in a storybook. Poppies are everywhere. There is evidence all over town of John McCrae's poem. Today we had a few hours of free time so Josh and I took in the Flander's Field Museum and sought out some Belgian chocolate - so good! The museum was fantastic - provided the stories of many nations and individuals involved in the war effort. ...

Maybe we mourn too, for the people who simply never were, for their potential fathers were gunned down in Flanders fields. And that is why, as we reach another Remembrance Day, and people (almost) nation-wide have a holiday, "at the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them."

... another across his back who he had picked up in No Man's Land. It stands on top of broken bits of concrete & with two German bunkers in front & behind & broken parts of some too. It creates a very powerful commentary. Just a little further up was VC Corner Cemetery. There are no individual headstones here because so many were unknown or unable to be identified. All the names are on the wall - 1,180 names from the Battle of Fromelles, ...
