City Pics: Brussels (again)

IMG_5957

When I recently went to Brussels for a short business trip, I also had the opportunity to (again) explore Belgium’s (Europe’s) capital on a Sunday afternoon. The city that’s famous for chocolate and fries also offers beautiful buildings, a compact, walkable downtown, good public transit and bikeshare systems and many “sticky” streets with loads of people, shops and patios.

On the downside, due to a train strike on Monday I also had the “pleasure” of getting to know Brussels as one of the most congested cities in Europe, with a nerve-stretching 2-hour bus ride from the city center to the airport that only took 15 minutes by train the day before.
