To feel like a medieval peasantTo emerge from a narrow Brussel's side street and behold, for the first time, La Grand Place is to come as close as you can ever come to feeling like a medieval peasant.
And if this first sighting should occur on a clear and sunny day, when the light picks out the carvings and glints off the gilded buildings, you may temporarily lose your powers of speech. I did!
