As a frequent traveler and more or less homeless vagabond, I used my 5 hours at Bruxelles airport to jump on a bus to the city centre. As it was sunday I first thought it was a bad idea and everything would be closed and deserted. Nevertheless there was hope when I saw the crowed gathering around Mannekin Pis, the main attraction in Bruxelles.
I skipped the surrounding waffles (I already stocked up on Belgian chocolate :)) and headed to the main square and the train station. Bruxelles is not a big surprise when you know French cities…I give Bruxelles 5 of 10 points. Do you agree?
