My friend warned me before I came, "In Belgium, it always rains." I never listen, however, and so periodically found myself getting drizzled on last weekend when I flew over for a quick visit to Brussels. So when, as we were walking around the flea market at the Quartier des Marolles, I happened upon this umbrella, I just had to get it.
Aside from never listening, I'm also not very practical. The umbrella was cute, but didn't prevent anybody from getting drizzled on. Can you even spot my purchase in this picture?
