Belgium is famous for its lace and its chocolate.
The Belgian countryside is mainly farmland, dotted with cows and red-roofed houses. Blue flowered flax is grown to be woven into linen. There are bright yellow fields of sunflowers which are used for their oil.
|Brussels is a very cosmopolitan city. It is the political center of the European Union. NATO headquarters is located in the city.|
|Buildings still remain from the 1958 World Exhibition, including the Chinese Pavillion and a model of the atom called The Atomium.|
The old section of Brussels is called La Grande Place, a square of buildings which formerly housed the guilds.
|One of the most famous sights of Brussels is a small fountain called Le Mannequin Pis. The city has been given over 500 outfits of clothing for him including an Elvis suit.|
Restaurants line the alleyways. We ate dinner at a restaurant called Vincent's where we tried Waterzooi, a local specialty of chicken in a cream sauce.
