Day 3: WaterLoo, Wellington Musuem

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Waterloo has always been a strategic place because of its location: at the edge of the Soignes Forest, at the gates of Brussels. In the centre of the village you can find the Wellington Museum, a former 18th century coaching inn (listed building) which served as Headquarter for the Duke of Wellington.

Also managed to snap a pic with this Napoleon Memorial Statue. Nth much over here so we jus spent bout half an hour before we head to next destination.....Few fact bout this Waterloo is it has become one of the world's most famous battlefield after Napoleon was defeated here on 18 June 1815, by the combined Anglo-Dutch troops under the command of the Duke of Wellington, and the Prussian army under Marshal Blücher. This place is one of Belgium's main tourist attractions, with hundreds of thousands visitors coming each year to look over the plains from the Lion of Waterloo.

I manage to take few shots here....when i were it was autumn so the autumn feeling is nice for photosnapping...It dun nd nice post jus nd to stand the pic will come out looking awesome!!
