Our friend, Antoinette, says "Hi" to all the walking ladies from her new home in Switzerland. It has been cold there for the first time and gray as well with the first snow fall. More is expected on Sunday. She has a busy schedule with a trip to Berne this afternoon to attend an English course followed by a theater show to see Hamlet in German. Saturday she goes to Zurich with people from an English Lit. class to see Noel Coward's play, "Blithe's Spirit". Thanks for staying in touch!

A Note from our friend HELEN Bobbitt! Helen and Richard have sent greetings and a note that they have arrived in Desenzano, Italy ... the next destination on their move around Europe as Richard completes his assignments. They had a fun trip down stopping enroute first at Loreley on the Rhine where their room overlooked river and castle. Then down the Romantic Road from Wurzburg visiting sites on the way and staying in Donawurtz on the Danube the next night. A visit to King Leopold's castle the next day and on to Innsbruck, Austria for the evening where they enjoyed a walk before dinner. They ventured across the alps the next morning and are now in Italy!

Our reward after the Ohain walk Nov. 8th at Miam - "thanks" to Verena who will leave us soon!

Hi Ladies ... Many thanks go to our last 2 Friday walk leaders, Martha Harris, who did a trip around the Bois de la Cambre and beyond on the 15th and to Helen Bobbitt in Tervuren this past Friday. It was nice of Helen to do the walk on her last Friday with us. Those who have gotten to know her these past 5 months will indeed miss her.

This Friday, the 29th, Lisa Giannino will lead us at 1pm starting from the parking lot at the golf course next to the Hippodrome off Av. Franklin Roosevelt. To get there - Turn right off of Franklin Roosevelt just before the Hippodrome if you are coming from town (or left just after - if coming toward central Brussels) onto Ch. de la Hulpe heading toward the Ch. de Waterloo. Then take a left turn at your first opportunity into a parking lot. Check your maps if you are uncertain about this. Lisa will meet us there. She has arranged for us to have our refreshments after our walk at the cafe/restaurant for the golf course!

If you plan to join us please call Lisa Friday between 8:30 - 9am at her home phone: 02/375.81.69 or on her cell phone: 0475 77 28 23.

Note: I am also attaching an updated schedule for the walks.

Reminder: if you want to attend the walk and Christmas luncheon on Fri., Dec. 3rd. Sheila is now taking requests. The number will be limited to the first 16 to sign up for the delicious lunch at the Auberge de la Roserie in Ohain.
