The Markets of Brussels, Belgium - 1st January 2007

Nosher and Isobel head over via the Channel Tunnel to visit Jules and Pieter in Brussels for New Year's Eve. Over the few days we are there, we take a couple of trips out to visit various markets, including a continuing Christmas Market near the Grand Place in the heart of Brussels' old town.
