Found these two good shots of Mons on Flickr. Mons always struck me as interesting in that it had the worn, old cobblestone nature that one stereotypically thinks as “old Europe” (and that’s said in a nostalgic vein, not in a Donald Rumsfled-idiotic way). Much of the architecture didn’t seem modern, as if the place had a definite sense of history. Technically, Mons is also the home of SHAPE and the NATO high command. That was more on the outskirts, but within city limits — not “downtown” like these pictures depict:

The thing I remember most about Mons was some of the streets and alleys being narrow.
