We did next to no sightseeing in Brussels, but boy did we eat and drink (see attached Waffle photo - it is as good as it looks). Mick sampled a few of the local brews - the best being Trappiste Rochefort - a dark brew with 11.3 % alcohol made to a centuries old monk recipe. Yummmmmmmmm! Lisa partook in the mussels - which were also not so bad. And I porbably don't need to say too much about the chocolate.
All the guide books tell you how boring Brussels is - but we loved it. Endless restuarants and cafes, cool shops and the sun doesn't set until 11 at night, so people are sitting out on the sidewalks everywhere just eating and enjoying life. There are also some pretty amazing buildings - the main ones being in the Grand Market -as attached.
Next stop - grand paris!(aka another french bastard)
