Today, I received BE-191567, my first postcard from Belgium.
The message on the back reads:
Hi TanyaThe more times I read it the funnier it gets.
This little peeing man is a symbol of our country and voted as being one of the biggest tourist traps in Belgium as it's rather small...
This postcard depicts Manneken Pis, literally Little Man Pee, a fountain in Brussels. The Wiki page is worth a read; apparently the little man is dressed in costume several times a week, according to a schedule. There are also a few legends as to why the fountain was built. Cute!
Google image Mannekin Pis (or just click here) and you're in for a treat! Here's one of my faves!
