½ Marathon in Brussels
Brussels is a city with extraordinarily many activities; there is almost not an evening without some kind of activity somewhere in the city centre. This Sunday the main event was the ½ marathon in the city centre; I had no ambition about participating but the route was passing my apartment so I could hardly avoid being a part of the circus that surrounded this event.
I had been driving to Dinant with my friend in order to give him a possibility to see a bit more than the capital here in Brussels. After the road trip to the countryside I drove him to the airport in order to get him home to Denmark. On my way back from the airport I suddenly remembered that the marathon was on. As I entered Avenue Louise I saw hordes of people running towards me and I was seriously nervous about the time it would cross the street. But here is it that the constant planning and executions of activities comes the local police at hand; they are extremely good to arrange traffic and secure at traffic will be fluent. I had no problems in passing the road and could enjoy the last runners from my balcony.
