On the church steps

I have never encountered as many people from Finland as in the last few weeks. At the end of April,  I posted  a portrait of Anna and her friend, both ex-au-pairs from Finland who returned to Brussels for a visit after ten years.  The two young women in the picture are also from Finland. Did a travel agency in Finland suddenly put Belgium high on its list of places for its clients to visit?   
Where are the young men from? No idea.  All I know is that they enjoyed the attention.


  1. Everyone likes a little attention! Fun photo!

  2. Nice portrait photo.

  3. Hello,

    Very nice picture :-)

    A bientôt

  4. Great shots! Love seeing the children playing on the steps! Hope you've had a good weekend!


  5. Haha! When I first moved to Brussels, it felt like the only people I met for the first two weeks were Finnish. I fully agree with you that there must be some tourist agency promoting Bxl hardcore in Helsinki...

  6. Leif, so right you are.

    Honest Abe, thanks for stopping by and great that you decided to be a follower. Much appreciated.

    Merci beaucoup, Jérôme.

    Thank you Sylvia.

    Emily, when did you move over here? That makes it even more funnier, the fact that you encountered the same thing. Was just reading your article about pizza! very informative
