we literally turned a corner after dropping our things at the hotel and came upon this square of total grandeur. spires and mouldings dipped in gold - fairytale stuff. the funny thing about this picture is in the next photo she's yawning. i think we were all hungry and my husband and i were anxious to sample the belgian ale we both love. my daughter and i scouted ahead for a place to eat. within an hour the square and surrounding alleys were filled with people eating, drinking and making merry. brussels is a beautiful city full of friendly, open souls. we really loved it.
