Brussels in the sea of flowers

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Thu, 01/21/2021 - 19:05

Every two years the Great Square, a landmark of Brussels, is covered with a sea of flowers. This event takes place in mid-August and makes the beautiful old guild houses and the town hall appear completely unfamiliar. More flower constructions can be seen throughout the city, making all of Brussels a special tourist attraction.

Manneken Pis, who wears special clothes on this day, is surrounded by crowds - good to have a telephoto lens.

On 16.08.1999 I held a lecture in Istanbul at the company Telsim. In the afternoon I was able to gather some impressions of Istanbul, for example from the Bulgarian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Stefan, which was built of metal and of course of the Hagia Sophia (Sophia Church), however, the planned early return flight on 17.08. let me go to bed early.
