Daytrip to Brussels
Only an hour from Bruges is the capital of Belgium and the European Union. Despite the bitter cold we squeezed in the European Parliament, Godiva chocolates, Manekin – Piss (the Belgian version of Italy’s the David – 1/10 the size with even less modesty), and its greatest site – Le Grand Place. Victor Hugo called it “the most beautiful square in Europe.” While we wanted to sit and enjoy it we were so cold that Haley’s hands turned white and “started to burn.” We thought those might be symptoms of the early stages of frost bite so we figured we move on to some place warmer.
