Manneken

Happy Friday everyone!

I guess you can’t really go for a few days taking photos in Brussels, without stopping by the Manneken Pis statue at least once. It’s a little like the Mona Lisa painting in the Louvre; that is you wander around aimlessly for a while and then stumble on a group of people who are crowded around something that is much smaller than you had ever imagined. Still, it’s nice to see it.

I saw this statue on both days I was in Brussels, and he was wearing different outfits on each day. They have many outfits that they dress the statue up in, and they’ve done really well at marketing the concept to visitors.

It seems like so long ago since I was in Brussels, even though it was only two weeks. I’m heading away again this weekend (Latvia) but then I’m going to have a lovely couple of weekends at home catching up with friends, and on sleep.
