Dinant

Bobbe e-mailed me yesterday and told me that I'd be living in Dinant. It's a small town with a population of about 13,000. The inventor of the saxophone, Adolf Sax, was born there too! They speak French (thank God) and its right next to the France border. Here are some pictures! I don't know my host families yet but if they know my city then they can start looking for people that want me :)

The Notre Dame Cathedral and River Meuse

Dinant (with train routes) in relation to other cities. 90 min train ride to Brussels :)

District 2170

I got an email from Bobbe the other day and I'm going to district 2170. Here is a picture of it :)


I'm going to the yellow region, probably from about the middle down. This means that the capital, Brussels, and Antwerp, the diamond capital of the world, are in my district. I probably won't live in Brussels but I'll still be close! I also added the girl that's living in Belgium now as a friend on facebook so hopefully she'll help me out. 8 more months :)
