25th of May 2008: Eben Emael and Valkenburg Fluwelen grotten

People who didn't showed up were wrong to miss this trip.
First we visited the Fort at Eben Emael and learned a bit about WWII history and the fort got captured in few time by the Germans. We also learned about the cruelty war can bring upon people. It was quite interesting but despite the serious topic, there was space for humour and relativation.
After a drink, we went with the bus to Valkenburg where we visited Fluwelen grotten (caves) and made a short walk upon the ruin of the old castle.
We also broke a record today about amount of different nationalities on the bus: with 39 people we counted 22 different ones!
