Liège is, however, very much the sort of city I like - sombre, industrial, topographically melodramatic, utterly modern, and, occasionally, revolutionary, with a tendency to Jacquerie, General Strikes and such. None of these things are very popular at the moment, alas, so Liège is undergoing some tentative attempts to pull architecture tourists. And so there I went.

I once spent a night in Liege after missing a TGV connection. I had an EXCELLENT dish of sweetbreads (riz-de-veau) in the company of my wife and sister.

I think De Gaulle was born there
