Hi y'all i thought it would be nice to show you a panorama of the city where i live, it isn't a "normal" panorama though... On top you can see the statue of Brabo, who is according to the legend (long story short) the liberator of our city Antwerp , behind him is the city hall and around the market square the houses of the guilds. In the lower left corner rising in the back the tower of the cathedral of the holy mother.
In Brussels, long time ago...friends took me to a bar in the Grand Place...I asked for a beer...to everyone's laugh there was a list with about 150 types...unfortunately could not drink them all but did my best.
And mussels with mayonaisse sauce in the Butcher's alley or whatever it is called.
And Vif apperitif, which even rhymes.
A wonderful place, highly recommended. There was a film, if it's Tuesday it must be Belgium. The very same Donovan playing, late 1960s.

Well while we're on the subject of beer, as a Belgium it might not come as a ssurprice to you that apart from cameras i collect (and occasionaly drink) beer as well. Here's a place i've recently discovered in wich they sell over a 1000 (yes Thousand) diffrent Belgium beers. You can take them home or drink them straight away in the café. The place is called the zytholoog and is somewhere above Ghent towards the coast.
