Been to the skanzen of Bokrijk today. Old houses saved from decay and rebuilt in a lovely woody area. In each of them, there's people presenting old crafts, including the village photographer who takes 4x5 inch pictures with a museal camera. Didn't want to miss the fun and dressed up like 19th century peasants for the shot.

But the ultimate hero was the shoemaker, who looked like old Albrecht Dürer painted by Rembrandt. As there were no shoes to make, he played some old Dutch songs on his mandolin instead.
