Last day in Belgium and I had decided that today being my last day would be a day of rest with a little sightseeing. So at the stroke of 10am I was booted out of the hostel (they close it from 10-2) and decided to go and do a walk passed the Royal palace and back towards to town to see the Marguerite museum.
Marguerite is the surrealist painter who painted the man (and men) with the bowler hat (amongst other works). So I spent a good couple of hours just wandering through the halls of the Marguerite museum loving the surrealist paintings and generally just loving the setup of the museum! It’s designed so that you start on the top floor and wander down three levels.. the bottom level is where many of his most famous works are housed.. I was disappointed to discover that his bowler hat with green apple piece wasn’t in the museum.. must be somewhere else in the world!
I then spent the afternoon catching up my blog and doing some laundry and generally relaxing. Off to Paris tomorrow!!!!
