tour 02 (0 comments)
as planned we took tour two as suggested by our bruxelles guide. this tour started at the most famous citizen of bruxelles, namely "manequin pis", the little pissing boy. no idea why it's so famous, but our guide said it has over 600 costumes for all kind of occasions. and today it was dressed up in a strange costume too, guess it was some kind of christmas dress? so we paid the boy a visit just as everyone does, and i'm sure many others were asking themselves the same question i was asking myself: wtf is this all about? oh well, but we are kind and nice tourists, so we've been there. manequin pis: done. afterwards we went on passing by the "palais de justice", a really beautiful old building surrounded by run down and abandoned houses with broken windows and loads of waste in front of it - pretty strange scenery there.
next stop was again "grand'place", again pretty crowded and full of life. near there we saw the first cat in bruxelles. a talkative red tomcat. very cute and looking for someone to pet him - so lovely. additionally we went into a church that was along our tour. actually we don't know which one exactly it was or what it was called.
after that we took a break from our tour again and did another shopping trip through the shopping malls and streets of bruxelles. again we found pretty cool shops with all kind of wonderful stuff. after that i tried some burgers at "quick", the french (and belgian) version of mcdonald's. the burgers actually looked and tasted just like the ones from mcdonald's, but it's a bit cheaper. then we continued our tour. next stop was "cathedral st. michel". a quite big cathedral surrounded by some skyscrapers and modern buildings, mostly banks and the like.
taking the long tour made us pretty tired, so we went home, passing by "place de la bourse" again, but this time there were loads of projections on the building.
at the hotel we spent the rest of the evening watching tv series and movies in the original version with flemish subtitles.
