Thank you for sharing adn glad you liked it!
Your excellent photo thread of Brussels contributed to me wanting to visit (it's also great that a direct flight from Montreal is available). Brussels, with its two cultures, mix of old and new, reminds me in some ways of Montreal. I look forward to going back and exploring some of the neighbourhoods. I would love to go back when they have the flower carpet on the Grand Place.
An added bonus was that I went during the Flemish national holiday. It was interesting to learn a bit about the Flemish culture first hand. (someone handed out flags like the one below):
