THAT's MY WORLD - Brussels

Here are a few pictures I took in Brussels. I lived there for more than 20 years before I moved to Waterloo which is only 15 km (9 miles) from Brussels. But I have worked there all my life.

Brussels is so beautiful. So many places I wish I could visit and that's one of them. I enjoy the variety of places you showed us in this post.

Ah for a cake from the Petit Sablon, I forget the name of the Patisserie but remember the sheer bliss of thei cakes and real vanilla ice cream.
Beautiful Photos of a Brussels you obviously love.

Beautiful! I have just visited the Museum of BD, and see quickly the Grand Place.
I love those galeries. I've seen one in Ostende.
And we get some in Paris. I love their iron and glass structure.

Beautiful landscape and arhcitecture. Belgium is often forgotten next to other countries, but you cceratinly remind us why we should visit.

Lovely. I like the way Brussels has maintained it's character, kept its past along with the new. North Americans have the bad habit of tearing down the old and replacing it with modern stuff...sometimes not nearly as nice as the old.

I had to come visit your world...Belgium has come up more than once today (Armistice Day, Veterans Day) and I wanted to see some photographs of your lovely city. I was not disappointed! Thanks for sharing some of your world with all of us.

I suppose that things are not happy at 'La Bourse de Bruxelles' -- just like financial markets everywhere else these days. I am impressed by the last one -- Brussels with blue sky!
