To Belgium, for Wouters thesis; and congratulations to him. Pix are on Flickr once you get past the bonfires.
Now the new line from St Pancreas is in, it takes less than 2 hours to get there, and new posters are splashed all around, some of them quite good.
The one featuring Thatcher, Major and Blair is fun and preserves the proper stereotypes. Major looks like a tw*t; Blair is looking to Major for approval; and only Thatcher is actually going to do anything. Dunno who this is. Being Belgium, the posters are also in Dutch, but I couldn’t read those ones and neither could you :-)
Looking at people looking at pictures is fun, especially the famous ones. Someone (not these people) went up to this, said to his wife “Ah gee honey this is is sooo famous” and then they promptly walked on with barely a look at the picture. The Belgians are very good about letting you take pix, as long as you don’t use a flash (or a tripod).
St A being tempted by Dali. Close up. Look closely, you can see the grey background going through him. It isn’t an optical illusion: I guess Dali was in a hurry and didn’t have time to prepare the ground for the figure properly.
I even had time to make it to the Grand Place.
