Keeping in the spirit of Belgium and the love for cartoons: the current campaign on garbage bins to keep Brussels clean. Everyone is a winner.

A funny anecdote to go with this picture: while taking it, two children (age 7 to 10) approached me asking 'Madame, vous etes journaliste?'. Totally flattered by the 'journalist' reaction. Still have to decide how I feel about the 'Madame' :)

Aah...I think 'Madame' sounds elegant. Btw...I'm a fan of Tintin as well! :)

andreea, this (unfortunately) has nothing to do with the bande dessinée theme.
i have seen old postcards of mont des art with a beautiful staircase on the hillside. when i lived there i never saw anything like that and i wonder if it was rebuilt or destroyed.
do you know anything about mont des arts?
