Brussels - Capital of Belgium

This is a street scenary in the Hoogstraat in BXL - in front of the restaurant "Ici Méme"
A golden tip of my friend Ingrid and a memory on strip albums of the most famous belgian cartoonist Hergé.
Hergé - a pseudonym of Georges Remi's initials (G.R.) in reverse (R.G.) - is the creator of the highly popular comic characters.(Kuifje-Tintin and also Quick and Flupke as shown on my photo !)

If you ask an American "Where is Belgium?"-there is a big chance he/she doesn't know.
If you ask him - "Where is Brussels/Mannekenpis/Bruges - there is a chance he locates this nice country somewhere in Europe-Near Paris or Amsterdam.
But dear VT-travellers - Belgium is indeed a small country - but worth while to visit for more than only one or two days !

Suske and Wiske

Belgium is also famous for it's authors of strips albums - like Suske and Wiske - Kiekeboe etc.
enjoying every member of the family from 7 till 77 years old.
Can you tell me the names of Suske and Wiske published in other countries - like Russia - Italy - short all over the world.

Lucky Luke

Don't we stay children after all !
Yes - a dream of mine - and the name is simular Luc or Lucky Luke the cowboy shooting and acting faster than his shadow - sitting on his horse called Jolly Jumper - truly friends and creation of Maurice De Bevere - better known as MORRIS
Morris the maker of this strip albums used often historical persons for his Strips :
-The Daltons Joe, William, Jack and Averall
- Billy the Kid
- Jesse James
- Sarah Bernardt

    Thanks for your comment on my Istanbul page. Your Belgium page is interesting. I have been to Bruges and Brussels, though not for long(2.5 days). From what I saw it was great. Now I can read your Belgium page (I used to read Tintin). Mery Xmas & New Year.

    This Medieval lunch looks interesting. Is this a constant side-show or organised once a year?

    Great tips, mouthwatering pictures. I love Belgian chocolate. What's the connection of a restaurant accepting credit cards and local politics??
