The BIG BALLS of Brussels.


This has nothing to do with cyclocross. No minds in the gutter. A trip to Belgium wouldn't be a trip without a spin to the big balls. They are known as the Atomium and it is from the world fair in 1958. Since I had an 'easy spin' on the agenda today, I needed a destination and I hadn't been there yet this trip. I had only driven by at night and they were all lit up. A shame the weather was so gray, but I still think they are pretty neat. Strange, sure, but imagine this being erected 50 years ago? I still have yet to go in and explore or eat at the restaurant at the top ball. Maybe another trip.
