The Vincent van Gogh Museum
Close up, it doesn't look particularly attractive but, as part of a whole, it's very effective
And inside, it's stunning
The following day it was the Van Gogh museum where we spent six hours exploring the four floors of paintings. We weren’t completely mad. It also included a one-hour beer break in the café. One thing became obvious. If you decide to save money and not buy into the ‘audio’ tour make full use of the advantage. What we saw were painfully slow bottlenecks of ten to fifteen people blocking pictures and moving to the pace of the audio tour. Far better to make guerrilla attacks in the gaps: those pictures ahead or immediately behind the slow moving tortoise.

Fine buildings and water. It's indicative that Leopold of Belgium buried the beautiful river running through Brussels with a road. Nothing good has come from Brussels since.
The first few miles were very nice, stopping at bridges and looking around.
Above and below examples perhaps of subsidence giving the buildings a jaunty air.
And who wouldn't want to see a horror movie in this cinema?
Or buy a cannabis laced ice cream in the foyer?
