    Great TR!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Ok so you got me wondering about the purdy little Liberty and I had to look it up. We gave them back the small replica after we got big Liberty.
    From Wiki:


    The Statue of Liberty copy on the river Seine in Paris, France. Given to the city in 1889, it faces southwest, downstream along the Seine.

    On July 4, 1889 the American community in Paris offered the French people a gift of a bronze replica of the Statue of Liberty, 1/4 scale, about 35 feet high. It still stands now, on Ile des Cygnes an island in the Seine River, next to the Pont de Grenelle, a bridge crossing the Seine, 1.5 km downstrean (South) of the Eiffel Tower.

    And if I remember correctly, she's facing in the direction of our Lady Liberty!!

    So, there you go.

    Great pictures!! I am jealous that you got to go again this year. My husband and I went through Brussels several years ago; it is beautiful! The peeing statue is called Manikin Pis.

    Ah I see! Well thank you very much, I had been wondering but hadn't got the motivation to go look it up myself!

    I still have some more pictures left (Vimy Ridge and a day at Walibi Belgium) but I'll have to wait until I get back from Idaho to post them, in a few weeks.
