Brussels – two days before Christmas

united_kingdomBrussels to 2 days before Christmas: too hot – some trees bloomed, is cloudy and raining for a week – with small breaks here and there. But, despite the weather, I could not stay home: I had to take my camera for a walk. Downtown the windows decorated with Santa Clauses and candy look like your favorite Christmas story.

I also went up to the tenth floor of the parking lot at De Brouckere, one of my favorite places in Brussels (it’s an open terrace where you can see everything from top. Usually there is no one there, only the parked cars. That’s why I like it – it’s empty and calm in the heart of Brussels. From here you can see lots of people down on the street, but the noise does not reach to the top).

romania_flagBruxelul la 2 zile inainte de Craciun: cam caldut – unii pomi au inflorit, e inorat si ploua marunt de o saptamana – cu mici intreruperi. Dar nu am putut sa stau in casa, a trebuit sa imi scot camera la o plimbare.

Am dat o tura prin centru, m-am uitat in vitrinele cu mosi craciuni si bomboane, apoi am urcat la etajul zece al parcarii de la De Brouckere, unul din locurile mele preferate in Bruxelles (e o terasa deschisa in centru de unde poti vedea totul de sus. De obicei nu e nici tipenie acolo, in afara de masini parcate. (De-aia imi place, ca e pustiu si liniste fix in inima Bruxelului. De sus vad cum oamenii misuna in toate partile, dar galagia nu ajunge pana sus.)
