Has anyone ever used the yeti ski centre in Anderlecht? I'd like to learn to ski before the season and thought it could be a good idea? Is it in any way similar to the real thing? And can I rent skis to use there?

Since this Forum is a bit quiet at the moment – did you discover any interesting bits of Belgium during the holidays? We visited the Atomium for the first time ever – and it wasn't at all bad. The exhibition theme is all about immigration and integration and we found it very interesting. Did mini-Europe for the umpteenth time, it's as corny as hell but you have to admit it's very well done. Follow the route and read all the descriptions in the guidebook and it's really very informative. But the star find was the Sewer Museum. Brilliant if a little … fragrant. To understand the social history of the city you have to take account of the River Senne – where it flowed when it was above ground and what was involved in its cover-up. Out of town, another highlight was observing the archaeological excavations behind the Cathedral – if uncovered skeletons don't faze you, there are lots of them about . And around the site there's a brilliant mural, in cartoon/graffiti style, depicting the 'horrors' of the dig. Very macabre humour. And if you want a tip for a day-trip to somewhere different, try Middelburg in Holland – a very pleasant spot.

Just to praise NZ for their great performance in today's world cup clash. A nil nil draw is pretty good for a country who doesn't have a long history of playing with a round as opposed to an oval ball!

If you’re looking for something a bit different to do this weekend, you could head up to the Belgian Watersports Centre at Hazewinkel, where the British rowing team are conducting their final selection races for the upcoming season. In all, five Olympic champions and many more World and Olympic medallists will be slugging it out. You don’t need to know much about the sport to enjoy the spectacle, and Hazewinkel is a delightful spot for strolling and cycling, with a nature reserve down one side of the course and woodland walks down the other. If you want to pay closer attention to the racing there will be entry lists posted up inside the admin building and possibly printed programmes available. All is freely accessible, you can rub shoulders with sporting superstars (or you could if you were 2m tall) and there’s plenty of on-site parking. The Sunday sessions are 9:30 – 10:30 preliminary time trial and 15:00 – 17:20 semi-finals. The finals are on Monday, between 9:00 and 11:30 (for the dedicated).
