2. Mr. G. had to have a topography, I hope it is the right word, because here they call it pet scan which sounds funny as Mr. G. is not a pet but a human. At least I think so. The whole procedure lasted 2 h and I decided to not return home but see what I could visit in this area of Brussels.
The only interesting place near the hospital was the Royal Observatory of Belgium, from where our weatherforecasts etc come. I just could take some pictures from outside, because I had not enough time for a detailed visit. It is open to the public and certainly very interesting for those who are interested in astronomy and astrophysics. Meanwhile Mr. G had finished and I could pick him up.
4. As usual when it is still too cold to sit in my garden, I go to Nicole, her terrace is wind protected and very warm. In summer it is so hot there that she can't sit on it, then my garden is a welcomed place.
For her birthday Ilona and I had offered her one palm tree, and she was so pleased that she bought a second one. Now it looks really "holiday".
Ilona, Nicole and I wanted to to enjoy the sunshine somewhere near home, and landed in the Brasserie of the old farm which had once served as hospital for Wellington's wounded soldiers. We sat there the whole afternoon, the view is just so beautiful, when you think that you in a town and have countryside just at your doorstep. The star of course was Charlie, he went from table to table to say hello and waved with his big bushy tail, then he settled down in the shade. With the result that all people there were talking with us about .... Charlie !
We had an excellent afternoon !
