Brussels, Belgium
May 23rd, 2005


Pros: Belgium waffle, with ice cream, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream.
Cons: none

So Brussels seems like a cool town, but we've only been here for less than 24 hours. Bad thing is, I think we are done. We got in late last night, checked in, and went to bed. This morning we woke up, saw the Grand Place square, saw the Mannekin Pis, and wandered for a bit. We plan on going out tonight, getting dinner, and heading to Amsterdam in the morning.

For those of you who don't know what the Mannekin Pis is, it is a statue of a little boy peeing. Our travel book talked it up and friends told us it was funny, so we were looking forward to this big elaborate statue. Ends up being about 12 inches tall, max. (Tall, not long).

After the peeing, we wandered on to find Haagen Daaz and treated ourselves to a Belgium waffle, with ice cream, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream. It was amazing. Possibly the best meal of the trip.

So aside from that minor amusement, we are relaxing today. I am unloading my digital camera, replying to e-mails, booking hostels, and paying bills.

Until next time.
