Brussels Friday evening ride part I





Thought I'd take you on a short ride with me to downtown Brussels on a Friday evening. I had to drop off my son and was shooting from the car, as those who have visited my site before know is one of my very favorite things to do.
The first picture was taken on Place Poelaert, near the Palace of Justice where rollerbladers and bikers gather every Friday night for the start of the roller parade.
The lasts photos are taken around the "Bourse/Beurs" near the places where people somewhat younger than I like to go out at night. 
I will show you my ride back home in the next posting.

  1. Thanks for the ride. I like the way the setting sun is making the buildings glow.

  9. C'est le palais de justice qui fait une expo Léonard de Vinci ?

    1. Il y là une toute petite confusion, Alain
      Le Palais de Justice est le point de départ pour les 'rollers", les cyclistes tandis que l'expo Léonard a lieu à la Bourse. On m'a dit que cela vaut vraiment la peine, et je regrette ne pas encore avoir eu le temps d'y passer.
      Comment va le blogging? Je ne vois rien de tout récent. Peut-être je me trompe?
