Brussels Airport


38998. It was another night at the restaurant, the worst again being the hours from midnight to two in the morning. The father and his daughter chose to take seat at the table next to the photographer's and as the daughter felt cold the father gave her his jacket and so was left with very little, only a short-sleeved polo shirt. The photographer offered him his red fleece cardigan but the father first asked his daughter if she would like it. So she did and here she sleeps with his father's jacket below her head, covered with the red fleece.



38999. A Sikh family in the hall, the father with a large white turban and two boys with small turbans, orange and blue, like Phrygian caps worn also by the smurfs



39000. There was no insecure feeling at the airport, just the occasional passing by of a patrol in full combat gear reminded one of the sad events two years ago.
