Upon our arrival, we began walking around the city center. We started in the Grand Place (Palace), where there was some sort of ceremony taking place (we never did find out exactly what was going on). The buildings and grandeur of the ceremony were simply beautiful.
After our day spent in Brussels, we walked back through the plaza, which let me grab some photos of the beautiful old buildings lit up at night.
I had forgotten that the Smurf legend is Belgian. The store/museum was great, with tons of Smurf memorabilia, most of it not in English, so it was even more fun to peruse because we couldn't be certain what the books/signs were saying. I did love these Smurf statues.
Just walking the streets of Brussels made for some beautiful photography. The streets were quaint, and yet full of much to take in. It's almost like we'd gone back in time on a street like this!
