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 !
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.
Don't we stay children after all !
