Displacement

By Eurostar to Brussels where it's a little too dark to see much as we drive to Antwerp but I remember all the statues - it seems like one on every other corner. The bollards glow an eerie orange and giant heads of TinTin and Snowy stare from an office block by the station and there's a huge canal in the middle of the road. Cobbles at speed!

Lunch on the 38th floor of the Gherkin was lovely - the rain didn't spoil the view but I don't know if the photos will come out. I was told off by the doorman for taking a snap of the porch - does a group of 12 women coming out of the building really look like a security risk?
