Brewery Van Steenberge
The unknown tavern


November 5, 1998

We stopped in a local pub on the way out of town, maybe because Paul was thirsty, who knows.  Everyone was very friendly, and wanted to talk to the crazy Americans.

A few beers later, one of the locals got out his harmonica and started to play.  This was no ordinary harmonica, it was like no other I have seen before.  It was like 6 harmonicas, all jumbled together as one.  Needless to say, his musical talents were quite a hit, with both Americans and Belgians.

Kim gave the harmonica a try, but became convinced that it was a lot harder than it looked to produce a tune on this gizmo.

All too soon it was time to hit the road again, because we definitely did not want to miss our next stop, Tres Fountanous in Beersel.
