Last Day in Brussels

Sunday in Brussels was much quieter than Saturday had been, and that was a very good thing. We head to the airport tomorrow morning around 6:00 AM – they now recommend arriving four hours early for international travel, and with all the new restrictions and forms we decided it was a good idea to follow the recommendations. So we wanted to take it easy today. This first picture shows a building that is being renovated just outside our hotel. They clearly intend to preserve the facade and have built a huge iron brace to hold it in place while they reconstruct the interior.

Next we have a picture of the church on the central square – the Grand-Place, followed by an example of the type of building that surround the square.

I suspect there is an interesting story behind this statue, but I can’t imagine what it is.

This is an example of the ironwork around the Petite Sablon park. Note the hand holding the flowers.

Another unusual building near our hotel.

And a painting of the Belgian icon, Tin Tin, on the wall of a building.

I’ll close with two examples of ephemeral art. The first is an ice cream cone with two flavours arranged in the shape of a flower. The second is the sand sculpture I showed in a previous post, with a different, but related, image today.
