It doesn't feel so bad that autumn is coming either.

Is that a word? When the streets are ugly, shift your focus.

Why don't our civic buildings have gargoyles anymore? The question is though, if their faces are modeled on actual people, who would be chosen? Last year's pop stars? Politicians? Half-baked reality show stars?

The smell of Church

(viewed 667 times)
St Michael's in Brussels. This time, I was struck by how Churches the world over smell the same - candle wax, books, polish ... and what else (?) ... all melding into a distinctive smell like nothing else. And somehow I don't think God would smell like that.

Anaesthetised in Brussels

(viewed 797 times)
First 3 - Brussels, buildings and views
4th - self portrait at 6.30am, hassled hotel for an early breakfast but I think I'll be eating it in my sleep. Gotta get that train to Brussels.

So I went to Brussels and spent a day wandering around. It might have been one of the dullest cities I have visited. I'm not sure what it was about it that didn't grab me. While Ghent was a beautiful town with some bland bits, Brussels seemed to be bland city with some beautiful bits. It was just a little snooze evocating. Perhaps in a different mood I would have enjoyed it more. But I was open to being wowed.

Best bit? recharging my batteries in the sun, sitting at an inner city cafe drinking duvel and eating gyros, watching the cafe hawkers and the people that try to ignore them.
