An interesting collection of notices in a ground-floor window in Brussels.

Lost cat or found

image

One of the disturbing things I found about Brussels are the numbers of cats that are advertised on lampposts, with cute photographs, as being “lost” (or “found”).

Gruffalo cheese?

image

I can’t think what else this could be, spotted a few weeks ago in a supermarket in Brussels, but cheese made from the milk of the Gruffalo.

More dancers

image

from the Zinneke parade in Brussels last month.

image

I like the contrasting costumes and expressions.  The theme of the Zinneke parade this year was have a meal!

I’m looking at you!

image

And you!

image

This was a nice and dramatic dance at the Zinneke parade in Brussels. I notice that everyone seems to have hurt their forefinger. I wonder how, or why?

Make love not shopping!

image

I missed an announcement of the overall theme of the Zinneke parade in 2010, but there was no mistaking the message of this troupe of participants.

image

“Bio is biotiful” (“bio” is the French word for “organic”).

image

“God save the Green”. The first photograph above shows a placard with the words “Dünyayı Seviyorum”. A bit of websearching revealed to me that the slogan might meanI like the world” or “The world is amazing” (in Turkish).
