Hello everybody. How about going to discover an other Belgian city? So, let’s see which one we are going to talk about.

Wavre is a municipality located in the province of Walloon Brabant, of which it is the capital. This city is located in the Dyle valley and the language spoken by the inhabitants (called Wavriens or even Wavriennes in French) is mainly French. Wavre is also known as the “city of Maca”, referring to statue of a child trying to climb the wall of the town hall. Tradition holds that if you touch the back of the statue (yes,you read right!) it will bring you a year of luck; one more reason to go every year in Wavre and renew a year of luck. What do you think it will work every year??

The Breakfast and the dinner are lighter meals and often at dinner is eaten cheese as the regional cheese, makèye, served on slices of bread. The soups are popular as well, they are eaten at lunch or even at dinner. It will be easy to find the Ardennes cured meats and as for the desserts you can find the famous macarons.
