Nice write up on Tervuren Dick !!!

For those who are interested, the tram Dick speaks of is the No. 44. From the centre of Brussels get the 1B Metro in the direction of Stokkel and get of at Montgomery where you switch to the 44 tram. Tervuren is the terminus of the line. Last tram from Montgomery to Tervuren is at 12.07am and the last tram back to Montgomery is at about 12.20am ... but check first !!

There is indeed the African Museum (built by King Leoplod in 1908) at Tervuren in the grounds of a beautiful park containing 3 man-made lakes and some great woodland walks. There used to be a lovely little wooden "boathouse" style cafe at the side of one of the lakes, selling over 50 beers. Unfortunately it burned down in October last year and so far there is no sign of any rebuilding work.

Tervuren is a lovely little town but unfortunately has no really good beer cafes ... the best ones are "Den Engel" selling 40 beers, including the two Corsendonk beers on tap and "Taverne Narixa" which only sells about 35 beers, but does have nearly all the Trappists, including Westvleteren.

Cheers !! Mark.
