      Climbing up or down the stairs was the most perilous thing, especially with a backpack and luggage.

I found the Grand Place (beautiful central square) and it was exceptionally beautiful. Though the rest of the architecture in Brussels wasn't that impressive. I saw the cathedral and decided that my favourite architecture is the gothic kind (think Notre Dame), visited the MIM - museum of ...
