The last Friday theme chosen by Västmanländskan in Skåne is abandoned. Since I realised that I still haven’t shown any photos from our visit to Brussels in February, I have chosen some abandoned scenes to publish today:
An abandoned metro station – this is actually the busiest metro station, Arts-Loi (Kunst-Wet in Flemish), but not just after a train has passed!
A few abandoned Metro newspapers in Flemish… Brussels is officially a bi-lingual city – French and Flemish – but most people speak French (or English, or Arabic, or Turkish…) and therefore there are always Flemish Metros left at the end of the day while the edition in French disappears quickly!
An abandoned park – Parc Cinquantenaire (Jubelpark in Flemish) was quite empty on a misty February afternoon but I love walking in “my” park. I have so many memories from this park, which is situated just opposite my first office building (Breydel). We used to eat our lunch sandwiches in the park, I participated in one or two Friskis & Svettis sessions there and I have had a few pic-nics on the lawns…
An abandoned jogging trail in the park – I used to jog here and the trails would be full of other joggers. I always met the same old man, he was in a great shape which was not surprising as I never ran at the same time so I figured that he spent hours (??) jogging every evening!
Another abandoned angle of the park – no sight of the famous wild parrots! My parents always used to see them when they were visiting but Parc Leopold is a better parrot viewing park.
An abandoned sign hidden behind the base of a statue, I guess the cyclists don’t need to get off their bikes anymore…
The kitchen and living room windows in my old apartment in Brussels. I abandoned it in September 2007, and still miss it!
O abandoned his apartment on the second floor in this building to live with me in my apartment in January 2007. He drove me home on the first night we met and it turned out that we more or less lived on the same street (different street names though), 220 metres apart!
