"BRUSSELS" Brussels by kiwi

I need to write more here sorry!

Well the Atomium is the feature of my first photo, and I found it's construction and history mildly interesting. Not really a "must see" but I enjoyed my afternoon here. It was never meant to stay constructed this long, having been originally made for the World fair. But it IS still here and kinda different to go up into a giant ball in the sky.
I loved the colours and photo opportunities. And from up there you get quite a view of the city!!

Home of Tintin.

A visit to Brussels to me is a pilgrimage to the home of my favourite journalist and adventurer, Tintin and his dog Snowy.
Visit the comic museum and see the Tintin exhibition.

    Enjoyed your preview of Brussels. Thinking a lot about that part of the world lately. Glad you pointed out the female version of the pisser. There's about a million pics of the boy on VT. Not sure I'd want to be known for that tho. ha ha

    Hi Kiwi, The atomium has been completely renewed after 2 years of works and is now up to date as in 1958. Today the exhibitions are worth te visit
