Back to all travel pictures
March 14-18, 1997. We stayed at the Hotel Arlequin. Among others, we went to La Maison de Cygne for dinner and Comme Chez Soi for lunch, both places much-admired at the time. Also good was Bij den Boer. Wonderful food, but an ugly city. We took very few pictures in Brussels, and Brugges and Ghent were heaven in comparision.
Our hotel and the view
The windows always looked good.
Nice things abound, and, when we were there, good food. But it's a dreary town, much ugliness to be seen everywhere, and the weather, as you can see, was anything but bright.
George, looking sensational, was there to brighten it up.
