Belgium: Day 44- Brussels continued

"Manneken Pis" the little man pees landmark of Brussels from 1618.

Huge crowd in the street just trying to snap a photo.  Apparently they love to dress him up in different clothes, even when it was first made. They also love to make him into magnets, candies, gifts, and t-shirts.  It is rumored that occasionally he will be hooked up to a keg of beer for locals to fill their cups.  The statue has been stolen multiple times, but always gets returned eventually.

In a candy shop.

And of course as a candy.

The Statue in "Chocolate" eating a waffel.
