Yes indeed !

I especially love the graffiti art everywhere, it's like the city is one big piece of art.
It makes the city so unique.

Very interesting city :)

That big horn, it really works? :eek:

When i get to Brussels, i'll go to the big horn and say "Hell... today it is a Sun of a Beach!" The cops probably chase me. Central Europe is "all correct and meticulous" :rofl:

Wonderful city there, I would love to visit Brussels. A question though, where is the St. Catherine church? :)
It's right in the city center. West of the 'Bourse' and the 'Grand Place'.
It's not a very important, old or beautiful church. But it's a very nice end lively neighbourhood.
