Round the World

Brussels

sunny 22 °C

Day 3 in Brussells......did a lot of walking today, visited (as a tourist) the buildings of Justice and The Church of our Lady on the Sablon which was along the lines of the churches in Rome, also did a tour of the Royal Palace, obviuouslywe didn'tgo into the rooms that are used regularly by the King and his family, but it did give an appreciation of what the rest of the rooms would be like....a lot of gold some fine art work and obviuosly they have alotmore moeny at their disposal than what I do! At the end of the tour they had a room set up for kids to play and learn through doing experiments, a great idea and gave the kids something to remember the visit by and showed the parents that it is possible to play and learn maths, science etc at the same time.
My favourite seafood now has to be mussels tonight I had them lightly cooked in garlic butter, sprinkled with cheese and fine breadcrumbs and lightly grilled to complete and they were delicious and yes I will have to have my cholesterol checked when I get home.
I went to a chocolate factory today and while they only do tours for groups I was still able to watch them making the chocolate.......they gave me a free hot chocolate....liquid gold, warm smooth chocolate. Also tasted some pepper chocolate and chilli chocolate both yummy and then I bought a couple of small bars for later. Most places here when you order coffee will give you a square of dark chocolate to go with....and surprisingly it tastes great- Iam not normally a dark chocolate eater but Belgium dark chocolate tastes good and then I have no guilt .....it is good for me!!
There are so many different types of beer available here, they all taste good and have now discovered some which are more like our Ales.
