028 visit the king

May 8, 2009


the king of brussels (the same one of belgium) invited me for a private bbq this weekend in his hacienda in laeken! join me if you want, his wife promised me to show us her seven royal greenhouses. those greenhouses cover six acres of neoclassical rotundas, domes and galleries. twenty full time gardeners tend the astonishing collections palm trees and geraniums. the total floor surface of this immense complex is 270,000 square feet and albert needs 800,000 liters each year to heat the buildings. just don’t come by car if you really want to survive, or drive safely and stay on the road.
