jen and i took a few days holiday last week and got the eurostar to brussels which remarkably is only 2 hours away. we have had a hectic few months so it was wonderful to get a few days to unwind. we'd not been to brussels before. this statue - the mannekin pis is a famous landmark! according to wikipedia there are various reported legends associated with it but it basically seems a lot of fun and suggests a city that doesn't take itself too seriously. it helps of course that it's in a city/nation that produces the best beers in the world - don't know if the two are related!
