Yes, it’s true. I am reviewing a whole country even though I have only spent about 10 hours in it over two days separate days. The best thing about Brussels is that we get to leave it Sunday. The people look depressed with lots of sublimated anger. Our desk clerk was grumpy and sullen. We walked up to the check in desk and he said yes? Like we were interrupting his life. The travel site had said this hotel was a five minute walk. More like 20! And when you lugging luggage there is no turning back. it’s no Bruges!
Since we exited the Metro and turned the wrong way, we walked for about 45 before finally getting a set of directions that worked. So this is not the relaxing part of the trip. We did have a fairly nice meal of mussels just now. Tomorrow we’ll scout out the way to the Brussels South Airport, for which we will have to leave the hotel before 4:00 am and fly on Ryanair at 7:30 to Rome. There is a reason the fares are cheap! But we are going to spite Belgium and have a good time, laughing our heads off all the way! But not before we get our waffles!
