paola1Time to publish some more Belgian Fries stuff from my archives.

    Beste Daniel,
    Ik kreeg uw naam van Leslie Patton van Associated Press. Ik denk dat wij beter al wat eerder met elkaar in contact gekomen waren, want wij hebben dezelfde interesse voor frietkoten en de frietcultuur. Op facebook vindt ge een hele hoop foto’s van frietkoten en ook allerlei aanverwante dingen, zoals de kunstwerken van het Frietkotmuseum, nu het Frietmuseum in Brugge. Hoop van u te horen!
