Just a small note from a local: what goes for the capital doesn’t necessarily go for the whole country. If your partner wants to plan a holiday in Belgium, I suggest to start from http://www.accessibleflanders.be. Flanders is the northern region of Belgium. It’s far from perfect in terms of accessibility (lots of old places) but if you prepare a bit, it will be worth the effort.
Thank you Pieter! I shared your idea with my partner. He used to go to Brussels a few times a year when he worked with Apple, and he has such a warm fuzzy feeling about it. I have that same feeling about chocolate, so … who am I to argue? Ha!
I would like to see Mannekin Pis and show it to our sons: when they were little and working on toilet training I would let them stand on a back porch and tinkle off the side into the garden — they were out little Mannekin Pis boys. (This was before our youngest’s catastrophic regression and the sweet reason why I get to participate in this forum.)
Have a good weekend, Pieter — thank you again for your thoughtful tip.
