Smurfs, Tintin, and a Huge Slide

What do these things have in common besides the fact that Morgan goes crazy for all of them? All are currently featured in the Brussels Ice Magic Show, a temporary exhibit of ice sculptures featuring comic characters, many of which come from – you guessed it – Belgium!  The Smurfs and Tintin, among others, were created by Belgian artists and comics are truly and integral part of the culture here.  Morgan loved all of the Smurfs, Tintin and his dog Snowy, Spiderman, the Wolverine, the fuze (a rocket ship) and, of course, the icy rendering of the beloved Manneken Pis.  The best part was the huge slide made out of ice at the end, and of course warming up with hot chocolate and cookies after we left all the frozen fun.
