Amnesty International breaks world record..

.. in my hometown
And I must say, it looked quite impressive




26,105 burning candles are pictured as Amnesty International established a new world record on June 4, 2008 representing the logo of the NGO, Amnesty International, in Sint-Truiden Grote Markt. This event is meant to commemorate the repression oF democrat students in Tiananmen Square in 1989.

there are more pics here:
BelgaPicture - Quick search (or search for Amnesty international)

I'm usually not the bragging kind, but it feels nice when you're hometown is involved in such a big thing. I'm glad it happened as it did, because this event had been postponed before because of rain and bad wheather.
Yesterday it was very cloudy but luckily it stayed dry the whole time (just a few drops after all the candles were lit)

I hope to get better pics without watermarks soon.
