October saw another trip to Brussels. Sadly, it seemed to be closed - or rather in a state of repair. The Atomium is being refurbished, and will not be open until 2006. A shame - it's probably the strangest building in Europe, and one I had hoped to visit again. I did get to see the "Tintin Building" home of Editions Lombard which is now occupied by everything but Tintin related stuff. A pity, though the Tintin and Snowy sign is still present, as is the Editions Lombard sign. It's a listed building.
