Walk A Line! Focus!

Belgium, Gistel-Zevekote – August 2019

This is the first time I post an entry in a theme of Frank’s Jansen Dutch goes the photo: Focus! 
The photo is from a trip to Calais France, and shows the flat lands of Flanders on the coast of the Channel.
Each time of year these fields look different; in Summer they look bright and light, in Winter they can be grey and dark.
We make this trip a few times each year, and each time it reminds me of Jacques Brel’s chanson ‘mijn vlakke land’.
(The link to my 2014 post is not working any more, I cleaned up my blog a few months ago.
You can find the English and Dutch lyrics here.

Nostalgia: ‘Mijn Vlakke Land’

This weekly theme is nostalgia.

Travelling through the West of Belgium always brings back memories of Jacques Brel, one of Belgium’s most famous citizens. He had a love hate relationship with his country of birth, and particularly did not like Dutch as a language. Most of his songs are in French. One of them is about Belgium, Le Plat Pays translated in Dutch as Mijn vlakke land.
