Manneken Pis- I was amused when Eddy ( our tour guide ) told us about the 5W of Manneken Pis. From Wikipedia: is a famous Brussels landmark. It is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain’s basin. It was designed by Jerome Duquesnoy and put in place in 1618 or 161920110623-215919.jpg

Everard ‘t Serclaes statue, located on Charles Buls street. It is said among locals that the statue of Everard ‘t Serclaes brings luck and grants the wishes of all who touch it. Many tourists touch (or rather rub) the statue, and this constant polishing keeps the body depicted in the statue in a shining color compared to the rest of the sculpture. Other parts are also touched frequently by the tourists such as the face of an angel, a dog, and one of the shields.20110626-195221.jpg
