BELGIUM - Brussels


Location - Western Europe; Capital - Brussels; Population - 11 million; Currency - Euro MORE BELGIUM

A strange one to kick off a tour of West Africa. I applied for a Mali visa at their embassy in Belgium, who then informed me that I had to collect it in person. So I had an unplanned (but very welcome) trip to Brussels in order to get hold of my passport, in March 2003.
