The hotel has been overrun by Belgians recently. It is funny, I don't think I had ever met a Belgian before in my previous life, and now they are everywhere, and that is on the whole a pleasant thing. We have Pierre for instance, who made me laugh this morning. He has three uncles in Belgium who have never left their little village in the Ardennes. He has been trying to entice them to come travelling for many years, but no, the uncles refuse to budge. So he has now taken matters into his own hands, and the uncles have been on a journey around Mali, in a manner of speaking... This collection (which comprises more than fifty pictures) is going to be an eightieth birthday present for the most senior of the Uncles when Pierre arrives back in the Ardennes...
