About the Author
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
Brussels and Belgium enjoys a fairly standard temperate climate, with warm, if mild, summers and cold winters, without much snow. The warmest months are usually June, July and August, the coldest December and January, when short daylight hours and weak sunlight can make the weather seem colder (and wetter) than it actually is. Rain is always a possibility, even in summer, which actually sees a greater degree of rainfall than autumn or winter. Warm days in April and May, when the light has the clarity of springtime, are especially appealing. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
