I'm sitting in a shop near the Grand Place sipping a hot tea and having a nibble on the complementary dark chocolate in Brussels. We caught the early train here this morning and saw the Grand Place, Mannequin Pis (yes, the statue of the little boy doing what little boys do) and several in the group got massive waffles piled with chocolate, strawberries,white chocolate and the like. Then we shopped in the inside art deco 1920s mall called the galerie St. Hubert. We are planning a visit to the musical instrument museum here and then the group is going to the European Union to watch Parliment. Children are not allowed so I'm taking the younger boys on an adventure. After three days of cooking and teaching at the facility, a day out is nice.
