We were shocked of how tiny it actually is !

La Gare Centrale

Near the central station there are some nice expensive apartments and a tree with pink flowers (cherry blossom). It was really cold waiting for the bus outdoors though.

Fortunately there weren’t too many people, only some school kids on a day trip.

It was a very nicely organised museum with a comprehensive collection.

The painted glass panels of the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula

It looks dim from this photo but the light from outside was actually very bright such that this photo can reflect the silhouette of the painted glasses.

Just me and Auksė swinging in the park.

Royal Palace

This is interesting because the Palace is slightly inclined. I hope it doesn’t say anything bad about the Royal Family (?)

Brussels Palais de Justice

Palais de Justice

“Police partout, justice complice” I was first shocked to see this manifesting slogan not being erased from the wall of the Palais of Justice. Then I felt a strong sense of empathy for the slogan – there is only one thing the police can do wrong in every society with rule of law.
