I don't fly, so you're going to have to bear with me as I stretch myself and my photo collection for these prompts... So, knowing it won't be in Asia, guess where we are?


This is Brussels, in the winter of 2009, where the Europalia festival had a Chinese theme. This is one of their rather grand but bland pavilion exhibition spaces on the Mont des Arts/Kunstberg, which was completely covered in red and yellow 'Chinese lanterns' (does everyone know what I mean by that? I don't know what they're called outside the UK. Those collapsible paper lampshade things...). As you can see, they were making it into a kind of pavilion. Sadly, I was there when it was closed, and I can't now remember if they were exhibiting something or if this was the teahouse they set up which is all I can find by googling. But it was spectacular, and all the more so for it being very grim and lowering November weather!
