Welcome to random Travel Tuesday. I have nearly 70,000 photos in the archive, most of them from travels over the past 20 years. Once a week I will pull up the unsorted photos, give the mouse a long push and see where the pointer stops, select a photo and write about it.
The image above is along the main pedestrian zone in Brussels Belgium. The second time that I went with Jay on his quadrennial trip for the Oxford Patristics Conference, we spent a week with friends in Yorkshire the week before the conference, he went off to Oxford and I took the Eurostar to Brussels. Why Brussels? I had never been there. I was going back for a second visit to Amsterdam, and Brussels was a good stopping point on the way. I stayed in a nice Hilton near the train station, visited a transportation museum, and took the local slow train onto Amsterdam. I liked Brussels. From Amsterdam, I flew to Paris, then encountered a cancelled connecting flight, and took the TGV to Normandy, another adventure, to be written about at another time.
Should we go back to building buildings with this kind of architectural detail?
