Antwerp by night

Antwerp is just as pretty at night as during the day. The city has installed lights that highlight the statuettes on the gables of the old houses.

Last weekend the weather was balmy and the street cafes were full of people taking advantage of the unaccustomedly warm summer evenings. The inner city is car free so there is plenty of room for cafés to expand their seating and no car fumes for customers to deal with.

When I am in Europe I always wonder when Australia will finally bite the bullet and create car free zones in its cities and towns. They are long overdue.
