Brussels Wonderland




From wonder into wonder existence opens
Lao Tzu

I made it to Brussels today five hours overdue thanks to American Airlines and mechanical failure. What a mistake I made in not flying Continental. It wasn't so much the mechanical failure as the way they treated us during the time we had to wait. As a friend who frequently flies Continental said, "It's like comparing Wal-Mart service to Nordstrom's service". Once I arrived and settled in (fantastic guest house), I went in search of the Christmas Market. The smells; hot chocolate, hot spiced wine and various pastries came wafting towards me before I even found the Market. There was so much to see it was almost overwhelming, but I caught a few shots.

I'll share more tomorrow when I'm more caught up on sleep (I've been up about 24 hours with little sleep).

The picture of the gold statue on top of the building with light hitting it is almost magical.
