Brussels: Monday 30th March 2009

The sun was shining brightly today – no raincoats needed.

Andrew thought the oversized cherubs must have been what he had looked like as a child

We headed to the Palace of Justice to see the views. It was good to look over Brussels and the Atomium monument out in the outer suburbs was clearly visibles, shining in the sunlight.

Then it was a walk through the gardens in front of the Royal Palace. Here there is a lot of work going into pruning the espaliered trees. It is good to be seeing fountains as up until now everywhere we have been they have been shut off for fear of freezing up.

We had a return visit to the street art installation Andrew saw on the 1st day. It fascinated him and we revisited it just for another look. There is the possibility he is thinking of re-creating it at the entrance of Rankin street.

In front of Brussels Cathedral we found some very comfortable park benches which were ideal to sit on in the sunshine. Wellington should have these seats.
