Still not allowed to exercise properly so I walked around the Flagey lakes with my camera while Angie and Mireille went for a run. Bumped into Claire and Flip on the way home, which is the nice thing about this city -  and the fact most of my friends live within a 2k radius. I remember being completely astounded everytime I bumped into anyone when I first moved here from London - where  randomly meeting someone you know is considered a mini-miracle, as is acknowledging them rather than staring into the distance pretending not to see them. Off to see Noam Chomsky speak on the economic crisis, war and social transformation at the ULB - a wonderful privilege, so inspiring and thought inducing - and amazing how active and quick his brain is at 82.

I don't know too much about Architecture but always thought this seemed a pretty strange building to host a museum dedicated to the topic! From the outside it's not particularly eye catching, at least not for the right reasons. The history of the building is intriguing enough - an old masonic lodge (hence the name 'La Loge') built by Fernand Bodson, who was a major figure of Belgian architecture during the first half of the 20th Century - so I decided to have a look around and I have to admit that I was wrong. It's in fact a lovely building, very atmospheric and totally unique. The permanent collection is pretty impressive and architecture geeks probably enjoy the temporary ones a good deal (too many incomprehensible sketches for me!).
