Wow, that's exactly the type of urban atmosphere missing in the USA.

Very nice photos

Antwerp is in the Top 10 Cities in the World 2009, according to Lonely Planet!

I'm not surprised...

Brilliant pics!
Now, according to the Lonely Planet Guides, Antwerpen is one of the Top 10 Cities of the World! Certainly it's one of my favorites.

Nice pics of a great city. But why did you use all that different sizes?
Some are to small, some to big.

And remember ...

This a show by a french street theatre group called Royale de luxe. It's was part of yearly festival called "de zomer van Antwerpen" (the summer of Antwerp) which last two months and is a combination of street and regular theatre, music, dance, movies and other things like that. Royale de luxe is a pretty regular guest at the festival.
