Waterloo

September 17, 2018

I went to Waterloo in Belgium.

I'd always wanted to have a look at the battlefield - to see what is there now.

The picture above shows aeroplane contrails, over Waterloo at sunset,
in the foreground, are some of the monuments now on the battlefield of Waterloo.

The big cone shaped thing is a monument built to commemorate the spot where a Dutch prince was wounded in the shoulder,
he was so inept - apparently - he positioned troops in places where they'd be slaughtered by cannon.

But he was a prince, so he got a big monument because of his shoulder wound.

The men who died under his command, naturally don't get such large monuments.


The second picture . . . 

At Waterloo - you can buy souvenirs, like these little gold replicas of Napoleons head.

They're still making money from this battle after 200 years !


and the Third picture . . . 

Visitors - having climbed up to the top of the big cone shaped hill,
make their way down again - they all make almost identical silhouettes.
