2017-06-11 To Lisbon via Brussels..

No doubt my camera is shitty.
High quality street musicians in Brussels!

Memorial for Rosa Luxemburg - a megaphone!

Young people sitting in circles in public spaces - all over town!  One of my favorite signs of functional civil society.

They say that Victor Hugo lived on this square and said it was the most beautiful in the world.  A plaque says Karl Marx also live on this square.  Most of the buildings originated in the late middle ages as guild traders unions!

They love their Manneken Pis, on ice-cream, on waffles, everywhere... I was told there is a matching peeing girl, created in the 1960s. However, she has never gained the popularity of the boy.
Here, for some strange reason, he was dressed up (there is a long historic explanation for everything).

Cow bells in the heavenly orchestra!

In a recent court hearing, the prosecution referred to my protest music, saying: "They bang on pipes".  I was playing the cow bell!
