Around Bruxelles 1.2

Last night’s concert was just great. Robbie is a true showman. I didn’t manage to take many pictures, but here is one.

As I had a lot of tall persons in front of me what I could see really well were the big screens.
Today I have visited the city centre. Saw the peeing statue- Manneken Pis. The statue was dressedย  like this

Later I have discovered that there was a Spanish/Mexican celebration

It was a very nice day. Looking back to returning to Paris though.

Notre Dame Window

Notre Dame in Paris it is a very impressing church, more of a museum than a church actually. I will not post here pictures of it, because I am sure there are a gazillion pictures of it on the internet and I am not an efficient photographer: I take pictures only with my phone; but when I was visiting it along with two friends this image caught one of my friend’s interest. And it really is beautiful!

Interesting Wall Paintings

I have read on Space Invaders website that there are 1000 paintings in Paris. I wanted one day- before knowing there are 1000 – to take as many pictures of them as I can. It is crystal clear for me now that this is impossible to do in a week, not to mention one day. Anyway, here are a few street paintings that I liked ( and yes a lot of Space Invaders).

Corsica Day 2

We decided to leave our side of the island and go to Propiano. It is near Ajaccio, the capital of the island and Napoleon Bonaparte’s birthing place. The road crosses the island through the mountain. The view is spectacular.

Once arrived we hurriedly ate something and then went to the beach. We discovered a nice place, but in order to get there we had to walk through the sea. Mostly everything got wet. We managed to save the phones ๐Ÿ™‚ Crystal clear water and some waves were waiting for us.

On our way back I got some car dizzyness, due to 100 curves of the road. What seemed to be a made in heaven road, turned out a little devilish. But in the end I managed quite ok and even got to eat some local charcuterie, which is local meat and salami and sausages.
Yay! ๐Ÿ™‚
