April 25th Walda Peron, David and Alice Van Buren Museum

Up and out for a departure to Heide and the Giardini Garden of Walda Peron. Walda is also an interior designer.

For lunch we went to Brasserie Georges back in Brussels where we got to taste some local delights, like crab cakes and French fries served with mayonnaise ... excellent! Very popular place with a great ambiance - art deco!

After lunch we visited the David and Alice Van Buren Museum. Filled with art deco inside, it was a treasure to visit and outside, the gardens are on 1.5 hectare featuring the Garden of the Heart and the Labyrinth, filled with seven 'rooms' each featuring cast sculptures by Andre Willequet based on the Song of Songs.

We were then treated to an Art Nouveau Tour before returning to our hotel. Dinner this evening was at the Restaurant Le Millesime
