MY TRIP A VISIT TO THE ATOMIUM, DAY 3.

I hope everyone is doing super good. My trip day three I visited the Atomium, I won’t say much because I wasn’t able to do a lot due to the weather. Not only was the weather not that good, I woke up late too that day because, on my previous night, I was out and left the club really late like 5:00 AM. My dear friend Janet and I went for a little tour. Which actually turned out to be a car tour.
I was able to visit Brussels, went and saw Atomium. Another thing that you will for sure be so attracted to when in Belgium, is the sense of art. You will fall in love with the architectural design of what you see around. If you are wondering about the entrance to Atomium, it is about 27€ per adult.

Atomium has enclosed stairs, escalators and a lift (in the central, vertical tube) to allow access to the five habitable spheres, which contain exhibit halls and other public spaces. The top sphere includes a restaurant which has a panoramic view of Brussels.
It was actually designed by the engineer André Waterkeyn and architects André and Jean Polak, it stands at 102 m tall. Its nine 18 m diameter stainless steel clad spheres are connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. Tubes of 3 m diameter connect the spheres along the 12 edges of the cube and all eight vertices to the center. The last time I did that kinda math, I was in college.It is just next to the Kings Park, and opposite centenary palace. Even though we didn’t have a chance to walk around, we decided to drive around the park instead. Janet wanted to make sure I enjoy the main city so she took the initiative of driving me around. It was raining like crazy that day, after the endless drive along the tunnels,  we decided to go visit a friend of hers who owns a small pub in Grimbergen. We had Kenyan meal sat there for a while and before we knew it, the day was gone and it was the night. The rain was still pouring, but we had to drive back home. That’s how I spent that day, you don’t want to miss a story on what I did on my 4th and last day in Belgium.
