I thought it would be nice to repeat here the photo I took when Linda Pelati from Milan visited Brussels. The Fox square is the place of a daily flea market. Sunday is more for tourists. During the week it is more for locals.

Mural painting to indicate you are near Matonge in Brussels (ZIP 1050, near Porte de Namur). Matonge is the Congolese neighborhood. Mural by Cheri Samba and in the mural the Belgian artist J-P Lahaye in discussion with the Congolese artist. For insiders.
A latest initiative in Brussels against traffic congestion. You can rent a bike to go to your job instead of taking the car. You can leave the bike behind at a booth and take another bike to return home. Huge success for the moment because of the cheap rates. VILLO is the contraction of the French words VELO (bike) and VILLE (city). I think they modeled themselves on a Berlin experiment. In the sixties I knew the white bikes in Amsterdam. They were free but that didn't work because most bikes were stolen.

I tried to save a group of 3 wild stray cats last summer. One died in the garden, the second ran away and did not return, the first one still lives with me.
This is to the memory of the cat who was so unfed she could hardly eat anymore and died within days.

During a winter I decided to pee "peace" in the snow, to show the vulnerability and difficulty to obtain peace. Performance art can only be documented afterwards by photography. This photo was a long time on one of my book cases, till I mailed it as a contribution to a mail art peace project, forgot which one.
