At long last we've made it back to Europe. Last time here I was 16, so it's been a year or two. The trip was fairly uneventful, which was a good thing considering we were on a US-based carrier, which I find have lower standards than airlines from other countries. (OK, I'm mostly annoyed that United doesn't serve free beer and wine on international flights. - miss you Qantas!)
We took the train into Central Brussels, and armed with a very, hard-to-read map, we stumbled around the cobblestone streets near the Grand Place for about an hour, our suitcases in tow, before we found our accommodation. Must be getting old, as it was "nap or die" from bad cases of jet lag.
We recovered enough to head out for a lovely late summer evening enjoying the sights. The first stop was Delirium, a bar recommended by Bennett that's famous for selling 2400 kinds of beer.
Went for a long walk and returned to a restaurant close to where we're staying called Chez Leon. Peter of course had mussels in Brussels. It was a happy end to a long day.
