Leaving Belgium

It's been a busy day, of course. We started with a very hearty
breakfast and soon after that set off to Heysel, home of the Atomium
and Minieurope. The Atomium was very interesting, but it's obvious
that nobody quite knows what to do with the space inside it.
Minieurope is a celebration of the EU on a minor scale, but on a grand
scale too!
Then a long tram journey, taking us eventually to the Grand Place, and
very imposing it was too. Up the street to see the Mannekin Pis and
then back to the hotel by a scenic route. And now, Eurostar. London is
less than two hours away...
