Excellent medieval castle, complete with ramparts and torture instruments; they just don't make guillotines like they used to, isn't that so? Plus, there's a canal along which to wander and observe. This city has thought of everything.

The Man in the Long Black Coat

I should have snapped this before he'd walked halfway down the street already. But the whole image was so intriguing, so European, so NOT like anything you'll ever see in this America. Who was he? Where was he going? I was shooting my own movie here, making up the storyline as I went along...then I had to stop and catch the train back to Brussels. Hmmmm...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Internet in a candy shop, what a city!
  • Cons:beware of the French onion soup; yummy but screaming hot!

    You have some great angles on your photos. No waffles and crepes before 2pm.. hmm wonder why. Sounds like a great choice of restaurants though.
