    Just about everywhere in Liège you can see these typical brick houses, often built in the nineteenth or early twentieth centuries.

    The three houses in these photos were all built in the year 1896. I took these photos on the street called rue Auguste-Buisseret (formerly rue de Kinkempois) in the Guillemins district at the south end of Liège, near the new Guillemins station.

    Second photo: The three houses.

    Third photo: 1896 on another house.

    Every 15 August is in the sign of big celebrations in Outremeuse. The streets are packed with people playing, dancing and singing. There are several stages all over this part of the city and all you have to do is to join in.

    Tchantches

    Tchantches is the name of the most popular folklore puppet of the Outremeuse part of the city.

    According to a legend, he appeared from between 2 stones in the ground in 760. As a baby he preferred the local gin (pékèt) to the milk his mother gave him.

    Tchantshes stars in puppet theatres which still give performances in Liège.
