Two great days exploring Brussels; drinking beer and eating mussels. 
We went to a Miro exhibit and a demonstration by the artisans who create Hermès products.  The Hermès display was fascinating. Although we couldn't take pictures we watched while they silkscreened a scarf (30 colors) and learned that it takes over 40 hours to make a saddle (also watched them stitch and put together parts of a saddle).
We're staying in the India room in the Welcome Hotel.  Pretty cool - a rival to the Madonna Inn.
This "armoire" is ...
really just a door to the bathroom.
A few sights around Brussels.
Appropriately named, "Manneken-Pis".
