Pictures from a rainy but beautiful exploration celebrating Laïa’s birthday, chasing the remaining traces of railroad tracks on the huge site of Thurn and Taxis in Brussels. The site is since a few years under construction, the main buildings of this former deposit and transition site have been converted to offices, conference and exhibition halls, the backland is still terrain vague. The ruins of service houses on the site are under water, the site has been heightened with a meter of new sand resulting in a bad drainage and huge mud pools. On our walk we found several looted bags, empty wallets, bankcards, a drivers license. There are three viaducts crossing the lot, you can enter into one of the pillars: it contains a huge vacant space, probably a former storage or workspace related to the railway activities.
