The Grand Place, Brussels

I've been on Wikipedia a while now, and it's good to see how far things have come. Much of what I do here is try to improve coverage on all things Belgium related, especially Brussels. Belgium is an interesting place and people know far too little about it. Not that I limit my contributions to only Belgium though; with so much to write about, what would be the fun in that?
