When I said 'yes' to the trip I was so excited about visiting Europe that I momentarily forgot about my knee pain. A quick visit to meet my mother in August made it worse. But a month's physiotherapy really helped and I feel blessed that I could walk like the others in the group. Except for dragging my right leg on a visit to The Pantheon, everything went all right.

One of the most famous statues in Brussels, Manneken Pis. There are many myths about the origins of this statue. One says that the boy was lost and was found by his father a couple of days later urinating on the spot where the statue now stands.
Waffles. There were so many kinds with various toppings. I opted for the plain one and it was delicious!!
There were quite a few shops selling runners, table cloths, doiles and other lacy stuff. I spent some time talking to this cheerful lady. She had just returned from Rome and we were to leave the next day so the conversation was all about Italy!

Not much of buying but a lot of window shopping.:) Leaving you with the shot of some beautiful jewellery. Next stop, Rome. Including the same here would make the post too long. I hope you enjoyed going through the pictures!
