Waterloo - something to do

On Sundays in Belgium, most everything is closed. Typically we really enjoy this family day and make the most of our time, usually around the house. However, trying to maximize the sightseeing for Aunt Jul and Uncle Pete, this Sunday instead, we decided to venture out to Waterloo where Napoleon's last battle and eventual defeat occurred. His defeat has been said to have opened the way for democracy across Europe.
