Finally leaving Kunst Wet

The last 1½ year I have been living every week Monday to Friday in my aparthotel on Jozef II on Kunst Wet or Art Lois and it have been a nice time even though this area is almost too quiet.
I remember when I was looking at the aparthotels 1½ year ago I liked the apartment right away and I saw a major benifit that it was situated on top of an Italian restaurant. I was really happy - italian food a couple a times a week not bad. But to my surprice I found out the first evening that the whole area was empty every evening and almost evrything was closed including my Italian restaurant. But I quickly found out what you loose in one point can make win in another - I have no problems in finding a parking space in the evening :D I am almost alon in the area.
After staying 1½ year in an appartment that is not yours and with furniture you dont really like - it is amazing that I stayed.
I was enormously tired of the pictures on the wall and the best part was that they were screwed in the wall - I wonder who would take them, it was you like when you stay in a very cheap motel - they do the same. Well the edroom and the bathroom was ok - especially after I won the battle with consierce who in the beginning came in the appartment every time I left to turn down the heating and the water temp.
I became to love the area ever though it was kind of a strange area - it was one hundred percent a business area but in it I found a cultural enviroment with music, acting and so on - including my favorite café with the best chicken salad - it would love one of those right now. By now I have tasted almost all the small eating places or take aways in the area - and my conclusion is that this is a lunch area but keeping in mind that few of the sites also will be open on some different weekdays.
Since I am to leave the area as of the first of August in order to move to Brussels in the Elsene area I thought I had to take some pictures of what I have been looking at almost every week day for months and months.
