School trip to: Brussels!

Me and my school mates went to a school trip to Belgium in the last days of April. I confess that I didn´t know much about Belgium but i absolutely loved the country and i hope come back soon! Especially to Antwerp that was my favourite city

First night we stayed in a hotel in Brussels centre because we had to get up early to our visit to the European Parliament (main visit goal). The other 2 nights we stayed in Thuin and from there we visited Antwerp, Brugge and Gent.

The pics you´ll see are from Brussels, from the European Parliament and other buildings. Sorry the rush and sometimes the quality of the pics...school trip...tight schedule...camera´s problems

Okay let´s start in Delirium Cafe Cellphone quality as you can see


















European Council






European Comission




Tram


Rush hour!


Galeries St. Hubert




Galerie De La Reine


Almost there...


Town Hall - Cellphone quality








An awesome 2 minutes scottish show






This guy gave a hell of a show ...then he came back right on time for his beer




The guy from the left is very nice Tintin up there!


Make a wish












<-- ID


Hope you liked it

Very nice shots, a good mix of new and old. Also, you nicely captured the gradient in the underground, something I've never noticed in an underground train network before.

Lembrei-me de pôr isto na assinatura

Yup, fui pela Alcaides.
Eu fiz um Tour pela Bélgica Fantástico! Não foi tudo pago (apesar do subsidio da UE e "patrocinios )...mas só se recebeu a factura umas semanas depois porque os professores pagavam as viagens de comboio e depois acertavamos contas...mas valeu bem a pena a centena de euros por esta semaninha.

Confesso que não esperava grande coisa da Bélgica, mais por não conhecer, e achei fantástica. Pena não ter fotos das outras cidades

Até andei em carrinhas da policia belga e tudo se quiseres saber pormenores depois avisa

Parabéns pelo thred, belas fotos, a Bélgica é um país ofuscado mundialmente, pouco conheço dela mas é sem dúvidas um belo pedacinho na europa, gostaria de conhecer.

Valeu!

I liked the piece of art displayed above. France is always on strike, Spain has covered the whole country with concrete with its hasty development, and Italy is perpetually thinking or playing football. I didn't understand the other ones very well.

I didn´t know but a teacher told me that when that piece appeared had a lot of bad feedback. Well I can tell you about Portugal´s one. The pieces of meat above the country have the shape of our ex-colonies...see the irony?

The chocolates are indeed great Krika

Yeah, it was all over the news, firstly because of some depictions of countries that made some people cross, secondly because this piece of art was supposed to be done by artists from different EU countries, the Czech author basically lied and did the job himself, a great job in fact.
