A cold, sunny day, my host mom Sylvie goes to a funeral in Brussels. Marie, Cyril and I get to walk around Brussels for the day!
|Me ^^^ Grand place|
|Hotel Amigo. I was told this is where the famous, rich, and politically important get put up when they come to Brussels|
|Comic books are a really big deal to Belgians!|
|Mannequin Pis. Naked this time.|
|A neat building between Central station, and the Grande Place|
|We're not sure what most of these buildings are... We know we're near the palace though.|
|The Palace of the King of the Belgians.|
|In one of Brussels many parks! (Right before Cyril bit the dust in jumping over that grill there)|
|A piñata party! I don't know why it's there. I got to explain|
to my host siblings what a piñata was!
|Parliament house, right across the park from the palace.|
|A famous street sculpture in Brussels|
|The Belgian national anthem. It has French, Dutch, and German versions.|
We also got to visit the Atomium on this sunny sunny day!
|That's me with Sylvie!|
|be. stands for Belgium.|
|This is the stadium where I came to see the Belgian team play the US way back in September!|
|A somewhat famous little attraction near the Atomium, Mini-Europe. Like Lego-Europe, only not made of Legos!|
|That dome is the dome one can see in the 17th picture above.|
|The inside of the top.|
|The elevator had a glass ceiling.|
|Escalators between the balls!|
