A SUCCESSFUL TRANSPLANT THE STRIKING THING about today's Scrapbook foto is the contrast between the Old-World Begium Village and the web of up-to-the-minute superhighways bordering the fairgrounds. The village appears to have been picked up in Belgium and set down here intact - which is close to the truth. Inside is a gilittering array of shops, artisans at work, exhibits, amusements and food-and-drink spots - including several large restaurants. And there's even one outside the walls (foreground).
