In "Dead Man's Party," episode 2 of Season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, we get this exchange between Buffy and Xander about where, exactly, Buffy might have gone after running away from Sunnydale:
X: So where were you? Did you go to Belgium?
B: Why would I go to Belgium?
X: I think the relevant question is, why wouldn’t you? Belgium!
So, I haven't been away from Sunnydale (aka the blogosphere) quite as long as Buffy was absent from Sunnydale that summer, but I did go to Belgium, as I sometimes do. In particular, I went here, the Chateau du Lac at Genval, for a wedding. If you live in Belgium and are wondering where to have your reception, let me heartily recommend Chateau du Lac.
I could now spend some time apologizing for being such a crappy, undisciplined blogger, but I've done that in almost everything I've posted lately, so I think I'll just provide some pictures instead, but I'm going to make you click on the "continue reading" button to see them.
I hope to post more soon.
