Last Saturday, I did one of my notorious day-trips, this time again to Brussels (Belgium). It could have been a wonderful day, if it hadn’t rained from morning to night.
It was the first time that I was so unlucky with the weather. Initially, I had planned to take an Art Nouveau/Art Deco walk through Brussels. It turned out, however, it couldn’t even be considered because of heavy rain.
Naturally, I did look into the weather forecast before. But as the saying goes, hope dies last, and my plan B wasn’t as well thought out as my initial plan was. I just had looked up some museums in my travel guide.
One of them was the Musée du Cinquantenaire, which is part of the Royal Museums of Art and History. It’s kind of an ethnological museum (in the broadest sense). The statue that you see in the picture stands in front of it, right next to the main entrance. And it really struck me because it looks like a figure out of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.
I will post some more photographs that I took on this day soon. But at the moment I am very busy with working on my new project called TravelBloggers.on.WordPress. It is a new blog here on wordpress.com, and it is meant to be a forum for travel bloggers to connect. At present, we are still a private blog, but we are planning to go public at the beginning of next week. Until then, my own blog takes a little break.
We will announce our opening day as soon as the date is set. I hope some of you will stop by 🙂
