MANIC MONDAY BELOW
Our host this week The Lurchers wants us to take her on our favourite walk.
I am a lazy person and don't like to walk around just like that in a parc or a wood when I don't have a goal. But every sunday morning when it is not raining I love to go to the midi market in Brussels. I wrote a post about it here on my Travel blog. The market is very big and has about 400 stands.
Usually I walk around there for 1 or 2 and a half hours. Sometimes my girlfriend comes with me and we always have a lot of fun. We take a little drink in one of the typical Brussels' cafés and when it is warm we sit outside on the terrace.
Yesterday morning I went there again and took these pictures. Click on them to biggify.
I take the train from Waterloo to Brussels, in 20 min I am there and I don't need to look for a parking place.
Just where I arrive, outside the station, the market starts.
This is my usual way.
as you can see you find clothes,
more clothes, fabric, curtains
Jeans for 5 € (6.50 $) even brands like Lee Cooper or Levis
bags and suitcases
and fruits, vegetables flowers and plants. There are also beauty things, like make up, parfumes, cremes, shampoos etc. for only 2 or 3 € (1 € = 1.50 $) and always famous brands. You also find houseware, radios, batteries whatever you want.
I bought my weekly moroccan bread (forgot to take a picture) which tastes so good and comes just out of the oven, some grapes and even peaches !
Then I had walked enough and returned home by train.
This picture I took out of the window at a station.
