Belgium has experienced its driest (and also hottest) summer so far this year since decades. Yesterday I went to the centre for a walk. It’s been so warm the past weeks, yet not comparable to the scorching humid summer days in China.
I started my day with a chill matcha frappucchino, interesting thing is that you often have to ask for it in Europe, as it’s not always written in the menu, but yea, if they have matcha powder left, you’ll make it for you. Flexible, I like it.
In July it started the sales season in Belgium, so a lot of shops are open on Sunday this week. Normally I buy my clothes online so it’s not that important for me. Do feel a bit bad for those sales staff who have to work on Sunday, or maybe they like the job and don mind 🙂
Want to know a nice homey restaurant to eat in Brussels centre among all those touristic trap? I recommend you to La Fleur En Papier Dore. Nice atmosphere with some traditional cuisine and hundreds of Belgium beers too.
No picture for the food because I slept in and arrived there just too late for the lunch time (until 14:30)…
All Belgium elements on this wall, smurf, frites, etc.
Nice cafe Poechenellekelder, just next to the peeing boy statue: MannekenPis.
As I mentioned yesterday, they set up 3 big camera’s on Grand Place square this year. You can get a free pano photo/video here. All you need to do is to smile at the camera.
Can you spot the camera?
Here’s how the pano selfie video looks like. Interested in it? I made a [DLive](https://dlive.io/video/joythewanderer/1680f650-7d56-11e8-bbe8-435b8d3c86e8) video too.
其实我去中心本来是想去一个叫做La Fleur En Papier Dore的餐厅吃饭，这个餐厅气氛很好，有一些比利时传统菜和啤酒，跟很多旅游城市一样，布鲁塞尔中心遍布一些坑爹的餐厅，要找到一家正常的真不容易。这家离中心广场和撒尿小童都很近，但是又很安静，非常推荐，不过我去的时候太晚了（周日睡太久），厨房都关门了，所以没有实物照片。
