UNESCO World Heritage Site

Jun 27, 1989

We arrived in Brussels yesterday morning and after clearing customs immediately headed for the train to go to the west and Bruges. This old city located a mere 12 miles from the North Sea is beautiful, historic and fun. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO it is not only a major draw for tourists to Belgium, but as capital and the hub of West Flanders as well as a university town, it is a vibrant and happening place. It is also amazingly photogenic. We made this image in the old town with the historic bell tower in the background last night well after 22:00, and there is still light on the horizon. A wonderful end to a very long day.
