IMG_3440 Looks more like a place to buy diamonds than to get tattoos and piercings!

IMG_3453 One of the vats used for brewing beer at the Trappist Monastery, Orval. Wonderful visit with Philippe Henroz, the GM. Did you know that all profit made from the sales of the beer goes to the Monastery’s social program? Drink up, it’s for a good cause!IMG_3466 Orval beer and Orval cheese, followed by a walk around the monastery grounds, including the ruins and a plucky dove with his tail feathers all ruffled up.
