Luckily months ago I bought secondhand fans from another expat moving back to the USA for the bargain price of 5 euros apiece (they were going for 45 euros at our local hardware store --- thanks for the deal Emily!) One of the fans was brand new so I had to figure out how to put all the pieces together. I was without a screwdriver but managed to twist everything in place manually enough to get it going. I was pretty desperate to get some breeze! Connor was a big help in the midst of the sweat!
Connor just sat and let the breeze blow over her! You know it is HOT when a two year old sits still! Or when dogs get impromptu baths in the street fountains like this one we saw! Connor found this hilarious.
I thought it might help to get out and about. I took Connor to the Ommegang Medieval Festival going on at the Grand Place and Sablon. Here are some of the images of the event as we strolled the city streets.
