Brussels - Lovely city, good food


View Around the world ın 8 months on chrisvasil's travel map.

Though I've mostly heard that Brussels is boring, we enjoyed it a

lot. That may be partly because we only spent a few hours there,

but it was excellent.

It has some of the fanciest manhole covers in all Europe

A very nice town square, with a large variety of ornate old

buildings including the city hall

Moules frites were wonderful, we had that a couple times in fancy

restaurants (10 Euro incl beer) for both meals. The steak frites

wasn't as good.

Famous peeing boy fountain. He's usually solid black, but the

locals sometimes sew uniforms for him - today some sort of army

uniform.

I think it was a celebration day for that sort of army, at night

they were there, and loudly fired their rifles in unison a few

times.
