Our beautiful day in Brussels took in;
gruesome sculptures and beautiful landscaping in La Botanique - Brussels' historic botanical gardens
The Atomium - a monument originally built for Expo '58, the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. Designed by André Waterkeyn, it stands 102-metres (335 ft) tall. It has nine steel spheres connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.
The panoramic view from atop the 100 metre structure offered a perfect chance to see Mini-Europe a model park containing reproductions of the most attractive monuments in the European Union, at a scale of 1:25. Roughly 80 cities and 350 buildings are represented. The park is renowned for the quality of its models, some of which cost as much as €350,000 to make
A trip to the Brussels Art Fair where Artist, friend and VIP Kevin Hunt was showing
some much needed and top quality refuelling
before finishing with a whistlestop tour around 6 art galleries.
