A fountain in honor of Nicolas-Jean Rouppe, the first “bourgemestre” of Brussels from 1830-1838 after the independence of Brussels   

                 We spent the following day exploring Brussels and got wonderfully lost. At first this was frustrating, but it ended up being a great thing because we saw absolutely everything there was to see. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, The Grand Place, Royal Palace, Palace Gardens, Department of Justice (which looks like a palace in itself!), and so much more. Exhausted, we sat in a café for about an hour or two before heading to the train station.
