Happy 2016

How 'bout starting the year on an optimistic note with something typically Belgian and something everyone likes? A colorful note by our oldest living cartoonist Marc Sleen (born in 1922) on a wall in  Antwerp should do the trick. This wall with Sleen's most famous character Nero who embarks on a journey to the North Pole adds to the charm of the well known Kloosterstraat.
"This street has charming antique and vintage design stores dispersed all over. It’s a small district that comes alive on Sunday, provided that the weather is dandy.This amiable avenue harbors several venues where you can enjoy a beverage and an excellent meal. You even get to witness some locals wandering through this delightful decor. People who say that money can’t buy you happiness don’t know where to shop apparently!" from http://www.spottedbylocals.com/antwerp/kloosterstraat/
