Top 12 Famous Belgians

Rounding up my thoughts from my course in Brussels, I have a few extra photos of a strangely influential city.

The Grand Palace in Brussels

Here's the Belgian Grand Palace, where 100 years ago this summer, King Albert made the decision not to allow the German Kaiser to transport his troops through Belgium.
