This is my fourth visit to this country and like always this trip too would be a lightning visit.

The day started with a lesson in history at the famous battle ground of Waterloo where the English finally managed stop Napolean,
the site today is marked by this impressive abstract conical hill called 'Lion's mound'.

The later half of the day was spent in the capital - Brussels.
Here we saw the city's most famous landmark
- the petite Mannekin Pis -

and had lots of chocolates around the Grote Markt,
the central market square of Brussels.
And also managed to see one of the buildings designed by the Belgian master architect of the Art Nouveau style - Victor HortaSadly there wasn't much time to explore the city further since we had an early morning flight to catch to Geneva.
