BRUSSELS CHRISTMAS MARKET (PART 1)




This is going to be a long 5-parts message. But Blogger was friendly today, and I could load many photos...
Hope you'll enjoy them !

We came in Brussels at 4pm... Luckily, it was not raining. The weather was quite cold, but it was not freezing....

This is the Brussels "Grand' Place", with the courthouse (15th century)...... a work of art : the sculpting looks like lace...

(to be continued, see posts 2, 3, 4, 5...)

  4. What a wonderful photo journey you have shown us! I can hardly imagine shopping in such a wonderful spot. Here everything is the same - the same stores for the most part - Walmart (ugh!), etc. The beauty and the uniqueness of European shops is beyond delightful. Some day I hope to experience it all.
