From Amsterdam to Brussels via Antwerp








Getting back home from Amsterdam where I spent a short weekend, proved to be difficult, because in the Netherlands, boats always have priority and you might suddenly find your road up in the sky right in front of you. I am sorry I lost part of the head of the man on the boat but all pictures were taken either in a hurry or by iphone or from the car or all of the above. The triangle picture is the "Sportpaleis" in Antwerp (on the picture just up from it) which is an arena originally built for sport events but now, apart from the Diamond Tennis Games,  mostly used as a concert or event hall.  The glass construction in the last picture is what is to become the new home of the Council of the European Union in Brussels.
