Around the Ixelles ponds

The Ixelles ponds near Place Flagey are both an oasis of calm and a nature preserve right in the middle of the city.  This is one of my favorite areas, especially on Sunday mornings when you can combine a quiet stroll around the ponds with a visit to the open air market on Place Flagey, with perhaps also a visit to café Belga for an invigorating cup of coffee with a delicious pastry or a healthy yoghurt or salad. I need an excuse to return to Belga to make a "reportage" for you!
