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.
