My Cards from Belgium

When I was in Belgium two weeks ago I sent myself five postcards. The first two arrived last Thursday. The third one arrived last Saturday and the fourth card on Monday. The last card finally arrived on Thursday, one week later than the first one. Of the five cards three card were bended, while two were not cancelled. Only one card arrived undamaged and cancelled, the last one.

The card that arrived last Saturday shows the Belgian Comic Strip Center. The Belgian Comic Strip Center is a museum about Belgian comics. The museum is housed in a building designed by Victor Horta and was opened in 1989. It is among the most popular museums in Brussels.

The card that arrived on Monday shows Manneken Pis. Manneken Pis is the most famous landmark of Brussels. It is a small bronze sculpture depicting a naked little boy urinating into a fountain's basin and was erected in 1619. For various occasions the statue is dressed in costumes.

The card that arrived on Thursday shows the Grand Place. The Grand Place is the main square of Belgium's capital and was an important political and commercial centre. Due to its homogeneous buildings it is considered to be the most beautiful square in Europe. It is also a popular tourist destination. The Grand Place is since 1985 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
