Brugge, belgium is .. well, interesting. It's kind of a fake midevil town. I mean, it was once mid-evil and it definitely has the motif, which in itself is cool. Takes a bit out of knowing that most of it was built or rebuilt in the 19th-20th centuries. But, good waffles, beer, chocolate.. what else can you ask for? Well, I guess a place that's claim to fame is great corn or something, since well, these things are not condusive to a budgeter's diet (they're expensive, fatty and oh so good). But you only live once so partaking the local fare is.. well, requisite. So, I followed up a fine evening of wine, cheese and bread, with a waffle dashed with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar.
The evening involved a fair amount of drinking and a lot of people watching. It's always fascinating watching how the mixing of cultures are when you drink. The conversations that are struck up. I mean, who would honestly think that we'd have a conversation about how many states there are in the united states? I don't seriously think that anyone outside the US should know this bit of trivia but honestly, if you're going to say something like 52, you should yield when someone who lives in the country tells you that you're wrong. But, all was well, we got to see a terrible band and drink a number of good beligan beers, which I put slightly below the german beer, but it's close. The band, "the germans".. which elicited a lot of "zee germans" of fans who have seen snatch followed the old saying "if you can't be good, be loud".. but it was a nice little mix.
