Brussels, Belgium

While we were in Brussels, we spent the majority of our time in the Atomium and then moved on to the Manneken Pis and waved good bye at Grand Place. That was indeed a grand ending to Brussels visit!

Atomium is basically a steel structure representing the shape of a single cell of an iron crystal. There are 9 steel
spheres connected with steel tubes to get that structure. Maybe if you are an architecture student, the building would interest you more. 😉

But it was nice to see those spheres lined up like that. For me, what interested more for the view from Atomium outside. Seeing the spheres at the other corners from inside one sphere was fun! 🙂

Also, the view of Heysel Park from inside the Atomium was good!

From here, we moved on to the Manneken Pis statue and had lots of Belgian ice creams and chocolates on the way! Delicious! I still remember the taste! All those chocolate fountains and the crowd in front of every ice cream shop are still fresh in my memories!!

Walking around the streets of Brussels, near the Manneken Pis and the Grand Place was really pleasant and memorable. When we went, it was around Christmas time and so, the cuty boy was dressed like Santa Claus.

And finally we walked to get to Grand Square! It was really a GRAND PLACE! Just standing in that square warmed up my senses and mood! It was really breath taking to see those tall building on all 4 sides. It was almost sunset when we went to the square. You can see the final rays of sun for the day shining brightly near the Angel..

Since it was the festive time, there were lots of serial lamp decoration everywhere! Even on this townhall tower!
