Talking Portugal, Hungary, and Belgium [Pic heavy!]

Since my other thread with pictures from Scotland was well received, I figured I'd share the rest of the journey.

Here's some of my favorites from Portugal (Lagos, Lisbon), Hungary (Budapest), and Belgium (Everywhere).

Click here to see my Flickr albums, which has pictures from many more locations around the world.

Happy to share the background of any pictures if there's interest.

Sure did! He was wearing a suit for some Nigerian event the first day, and the second day he was nude. He has a full wardrobe and full-time tailor. Other countries sponsor his outfits and he has one for every single day that represents various events, anniversaries, and other goings-on in Belgium and abroad. He's a huge deal to them!

Yeah...I know my friend because I am Belgian
Long story in short.....

When I was a kid we traveled with the schoolbus to Brussels and I had a kinda bad contact with manneken pis !
And you know why ? He peed on me , because he had the wind from hehind !!!
Downside was..It was really cold that day , and my pants were the whole day wet.Other kids thought "I peed" in my pants !
Even today , so after 30 years I'm still traumatized by the sucker !

Beautiful pics ! And thanks for sharing

Did you get a chance to try the Egg Tarts from Pasteis de Belem in Lisbon? I just got really hungry thinking about the egg tarts there, and the piri piri chicken down in Algarve
