Sinksenfoor

23/05/2008

The Whit carnival is upon us. It's an old tradition (that dates back to the 1920s, I think).

In the past, I used to be a fan of this particular ride.
That was before I had back problems and became an old fart.


This year's fun attraction is below. Not for the faint of heart, and thus not for me.


These days, I'm more into this...

Ah, how times have changed...

For a video impression, check here and click videos. Some great people watching to be done during this funfair, by the way. The chav factor is something else.

And of course no visit to the Sinksenfoor would be complete without laquemants (two warm waffles with syrup in between) or a portion of smoutebollen (fritters) from Désiré de Lille. I scoured the net for a pic of the former, but ended up having to take one myself.

Ik ben geen fan van de Foor... maar wel van oliebollen! Mjam!

@Piglet: tsss, je moet toch ook 'galetten' geproefd hebben?
