Today we took the train into Brussels to try some of their famous mussels and to check out the Grand Place. The architecture is amazing; I had to stop myself from taking too many pictures of buildings. Brussels is a very big city compared to Gent and it felt really good to get back to the little city I'm somewhat more familiar with. Bronwen had a blast on the train (she was so excited) as well as in the city, and both kids were really good the whole day-hurray!
We stopped in a restaurant called Chutneys for some mussels and beer. Both were outstanding!! We had a Belgian beer called Leffe which is Steve's favorite Belgian beer and mussels in a creamy white wine broth. The mussels were the best we've ever had and even Bronwen ate quite a few.

All in all it was a very good day!!!
