And it starts with the discovery of Ixelles, one of Brussels' municipalities. "Here, there are people from everywhere, it's like in my class at school, we come from many different backgrounds, and it's also important to get to know many cultures." is very rich! " say Apolline and Nicolas.
"Waffles, waffles, waffles …!" Our two kids trotters take us to discover the Chatelain market, where we find "The best waffles in Brussels."
"Do you have a manufacturing secret for these waffles?" Apolline asks the shopkeeper. "But I'm like Getafixshe replies with a laugh, I do not give my recipe, it's like a magic potion. " And as this predicts: "To try them is to adopt them." Yes, their vanilla taste conquered us. Adopted!
And Nicolas to call back "that french fries were invented by the Belgians."
"Brussels is the capital of Europe", proudly recall Nicolas and Apolline. "We feel European and Brussels." "So I'm for the Belgium team, she should have won the last World Cup Football!" adds Nicolas.
The Grand Place is still majestic. "It is surrounded by historic buildings, and what takes a little bit of space is the Town Hall, and if you look up, you will notice that there is St. Michael, who kills the devil. In any case, it is certain that in the Middle Ages, one carved well. And "I love this city!!!!" Nicolas shouts like a cry from the heart.
Rue de la Colline, we pass in front of the restaurant, The Brussels sprout. "How not to like Brussels sprouts? wonders Nicolas. It's like spinach, it's too good. "
And we cross the beautiful King's Gallery, which is part of the Royal Galleries Saint-Hubert. It reminds us of the passages covered Grands Boulevards, Paris. Have a break at Maison Dandoy, speculoos specialist. "Here it's been homemade since 1829. It really feels like it's handmade and not by machines."
At the question "What do you prefer in Brussels?", Alexandre Dandoy "7th generation fallen into the pot of speculoos" responds to the microphone of the same trotters: "I think there is a really good quality of life in Brussels, it's good to be able to bring up children in a city with green spaces and parks." "Yes, I agree with you, Apolline reacts, plus there is a happy and very pleasant atmosphere in Brussels. "
Did you know Manneken Pis? Did you know that there is "his girl version" ? "Her name is Jeannecke Pis, this statue dates from 1985."
"Jacques Brel inspires me with talent, passion and envy, explains Apolline facing the statue of the Belgian singer, instead of the old corn market. Clearly, he needed to go after things and to do his job. "
And finally, we admire the Atomium from Poelaert Square. "It's a bit like our Eiffel Tower, it's the emblem of the 1958 World's Fair. We can sleep inside, it's beautiful!"
