Brussels: Photo Highlights

Pin It
They say a picture paints a thousands word. I have a thousand photos from our June 2012 visit to Belgium (and another thousand from The Netherlands). I covered our Impressions & Surprises from Brussels in a recent post, but you really want to see photos. Visual highlights from Brussels follow. (Photo credit: some captured by my cameras, some by wife's).
