Biographie de l'auteur
As a small child Mark Elliott was dragged up a bizarre conical hill to meet a giant lion (Waterloo) then let loose inside an enormous chemistry set (the Atomium). To a baby Brit, Belgium already looked pretty weird. But that was just the start. Having spent most of the last two decades based there, he has merrily discovered that Belgium's surrealism is more than skin deep, that the carnivals really are as crazy as one might hope and that there always seems to be yet another timeless classic café to discover. This enthusiasm he has tried to pass on through articles in local magazines, books on Belgian culture and several travel guides for Lonely Planet. Helena's previous Brussels experience involved getting locked out of her hotel and staying up all night at the Archiduc ; she loves Belgium for its jazz fixation and laid-back attitude. Helena is a travel writer and photographer who blogs about food and her community.
