Photographer's Note

I am probably the craziest person on TE, as you know I am fascinated by many things - airports, castles, bridges, wild animals, markets, mosques, .... Also by stairs. I love stairs of all kinds. Recently, I look at some travel movies on youtube (well, more interesting than looking at the same places on TE, sadly) and I have seen the movies about the most famous staircases. Haha, I have seen some of them. But I have been surprised that according to Huffpost number 1 on the list of Most Extreme Staircases in the World are these on the picture!

A few years ago I was in Belgium. I went also to Liege to meet our friend Cricri. Pity she left the site:(. She was my guide. It was not an easy task. After the wonderful Calatrava Railway Station I insisted on going to Bueren.

The Montagne de Bueren is a 374 steps long staircase in Li銶e. The stairs were built in 1881 to allow soldiers on top of the hill to go down to the centre without having to walk through the dangerous alleys. When you reach the top you'll be rewarded with a great view of the city and the Meuse river.
374 steps! It is more than the steps Miguel showed us (Batu Caves, 272 steps).

In the Workshop the views from above, hahaha.

I wonder if our Belgium and Dutch friends climbed them.
