La Petite Ceinture

La Petite Ceinture, Paris

We also walked the length of La Petite Ceinture, a disused ancient railway line that has been transformed into a park. I had been hoping that it would be a little like the High Line in NY, affording me elevated views of the surrounding area but it was really the opposite, sunken and surrounded by tall trees, dark and lovely.

Back in Edinburgh

After the train brought us back from North Berwick (see previous few posts) to Edinburgh’s Waverley station, we walked back to our hotel via Princes St and Lothian Rd.

Square du Petit Sablon, Brussels

From the Pl Poelaert we walked on to our appointment at the Horta Museum, where phones, cameras, and bags are strictly forbidden and toured the fascinating dual building. Afterwards, we walked past the Palais d’Egmont (Egmont Palace) and into the Square du Petit Sablon.

Here’s a shot I really like but I can’t remember taking at all. It’s on one of my negative strips from the ’70s so I’ll claim it. Its either Central Park or somewhere in Europe, Hyde Park in London or Strauss Park in Vienna (in 1972).
