... we settled in for round two, this time noticing a third contingent that had joined the party. This group was full of distinguished older gentlemen (many of whom had very impressive mustaches) and they were dressed in blue velvet blazers, very similar in fact to the outfit that the Manneken Pis had been wearing.

We've obviously sampled the gastronomic side of Brussels too - with moules frites, croquettes aux crevettes, chocolate, oh and beer - well it would be rude not to.
Great holiday - although I think we'll be pleased to escape the cold for the warmth and comfort of our ...
