Monday morning was much cooler thank goodness. We took the subway out to Hazel to the Mini-Europe theme park. Which is as it sounds, a collection of Europe sights in minature.

Next stop the amazing Atomium. It was built for the world fair in 1957. A really fast lift takes you to the top. The weather wasn’t that nice yet we could still see for miles from the top ball. In the tubes are escalators and we went down this way. After our brief glimpse yesterday we had to go up it. It was absolutely amazing as you can see.

Tram was our return transport and it gave us another chance to look at the city. I couldn’t go without another waffle so we collected our bags and stopped off for one before we left for the airport.

I of course couldn’t leave without eating some Belgian chocolate so I got a beautiful strawberry bar at the airport Needless to say it didn’t last long. So after a rocky start it was an awesome birthday gift.
