Brussels Flower Carpet was going on this past weekend so we went downtown and checked it out.
Only happening once every other year in Brussels' Grand Place, the carpet is something to see.
Go early to avoid the tourists. We didn't.
Made out of Begonias, barks, precious materials, sands, soils and pigments, the carpets theme was Africa.
Unrelated, but also in the weekend's events, we kayaked down the Lesse River in the South of Belgium. It's not everyday you kayak past an old castle.
Lots of people thought kayaking was a good way to beat the heat. It was the hottest day ever in Belgium...I may be exaggerating, but I am not complaining.
In other events, I have officially become too lazy to make dinner so I am eating toast with butter and raspberry jam. It tastes magnificent.... I think I will do this more often.
