My first taste of Europe– a smoked salmon baguette with lettuce, sliced carrots, and red onions. Not my favorite find, but it was one of the few items on the menu which I understood.
On Saturday the 20th, I joined my art teacher and a group of students in a 6-hour walking tour of the city of Brussels. I should have been wearing my ankle brace because the 19th century cobblestone streets weren’t very kind. Here are some of the sightings…
really cool old building #1
really cool old building #2
The King’s Palace; only where office and meetings are held, not actually his residence
The Museum of Musical Instruments, also a really cool old building
remains of former city wall
really cool old building #3
beautiful labyrinth and view
the Coudenberg, with museums and a chapel
really cool old building #4
You know this guy. His official name is Le Mannekin Pis. Usually, he’s wearing only his birthday suit, but the town likes to dress him up from time to time (all his clothes are exhibited in a museum).
