When one says Brussels everybody think of somethign different. Many think of the seat of the European Parliament first. However, this is not everything you can find there.

On the way “home” we pick up Zuzka. Friend of Ana that just had arrived from France. On the following day, the sun woke us up around 10 o’clock.

I highly recommend it!
I stand on a road leading to a freeway, I hold proudly a board saying Brussels in two languages and I smell the chocolate coming from a factory next to which I stand. I feel like a Charlie.
