As I was already in Brussels, I wanted to see the place with my own eyes and went there.
Journalists from all over the world were there. I only saw one heavy armed soldier.
In these white, open tents, they had installed their different devices.
and then I saw "La Bourse" itself.
There were many posters hanging at the entrance
and all around on the walls inscriptions.
An ocean of flowers
photos of disappeared people and even empty beer cans as sign of the Belgians love for beer.
A lady lightening a candle
chalk texts and designs on the sidewalk and the walls
"Spray for Brussels" there were a lot of English texts
and the people who were hoping for the return of normal life and get some work to do !
It was a very emotional atmosphere.
For the tourist sector this terrible attacks are a catastrophe. Their income dropped about 80 %. Hopefully it will get back to normal soon.
