to Belgium's oldest town: Tongeren

These pics are made with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 on my way to Tongeren / Tongres, the oldest town in this neighborhood, founded BC by the Romans and started as a fortress to Romanize the Celts in the Rhineland area. Tongeren was important on the Roman road from Cologne to the North sea
