Belgian photos! Cara´s day in Brussels

Cara´s day in Brussels!


The night of arrival: My friend Mike (from Mauritius, met on the train) and I out for a drink meeting Belgians next to us! Everyone was oputside enjoying the nice weather on an intersection with lots of bars. It was very alive.


One day to see it all: I visited la musee de Beaux Arts/Fine Arts museum and saw La Mort de Marat/The death of Marat...which I studied in Histoire de l´Art Contemporain/Contemporary Art History in Lyon. It was a complete surprise. I had no idea it was there. Very cool!


The off to Brussels Park...once again everyone was out enjoying the weather, lounging on the grass. Behind me is Palais de la Nation, Brussels parliamant.


Cara with a really yummy Belgian waffle! YUM YUM YUM! I ate 2 yesterday just to make the most of it. They are so good you don´t need whipped cram, strawberries, chocolate or any of those things.

mmmm the weather looks so good, it has so turned to winter here-cold and wet really not happy.

Glad to see you are tasting the delights from the places you visit-im sure they are so much better than anything we could get here.

How awsome to be able to see a picture that you studied in your course-lol

See u soon,

Luv Rhiannon

You know I think that I bought a Belgian waffel maker once. I do not think that it made the same creations that you are eating. Looks good! Do they put Nutella on everything also? I have finished all of my chocolate and tea here and miss Europe.
