At the End of Brussels

November 21, 2008


In Brussels I actually did find a nice cafe – a few minutes walk away from the apartment. All these months I had assumed there was nothing nice, clean, and safe-for-a-laptop.

But this was all of these.  And there were two people working on laptops.  I got a breakfast with a warm croissant, actually good coffee, and fresh squeezed orange juice for 4 Euros.

Christmas time is coming soon, and decorations are popping up here and there around the city.  In a city as ugly as Brussels, it’s hard to find good photos.   But the truth is, there are a lot of beautiful buildings amongst the filth, and if you put your mind to it, you can get some good shots. I think they are best in black and white.

I found a couple, but I didn’t have a camera with me.

    My wife and I were born behind the Iron Curtain so once we got in the Free World we tried to achieve some of our dreams, I mean to visit the City of Lights Paris, Liverpool the birthplace of the Beatles, Munich the home of the radio broadcast Free Europe, Vienna, Rome etc. I remember my wife and I visited Paris, and we got a breakfast with fresh croissant. We loved it so much that we ordered more than a dozen to bring them in the hotel… and the waitress asked us if we had a party 🙂
