A trip to a European capital city : Brussels- October 2004.

In October 2004, we went to Brussels with the euroclass (former 4c now 3c) in order to visit the Parliament.
Such a visit had already been organized in our school by one of our English teachers, Mrs Deniau, in 2001.
So, we got in touch with several Parisian MEPs and one of them offered us this visit which was very interesting.
We were welcomed by the MEP who answered our questions and then we had lunch before visiting the Parliament itself. Finally, we had a lovely walk down to La Grand Place, looked for the Manneken Pis, bought some chocolate, of course, and off we went ! Back to Paris.

A few opinions:

"The visit of Brussels was very interesting. The French MEP met us and helped us understand the way the Parliament works. The city is beautiful and Belgian chocolates are delicious!"

"We visited different places in Brussels which were interesting. I enjoyed myself on that day!"

"This visit of the European capital city was interesting. As for me, It was the first time I went to Brussels.I enjoyed the day but I think it would have been better if we could have stayed more time there to visit the town."
