BBQ and more looking around

So the neighbors came by yesterday and we had a cookout. It was too cold to eat outside so we ate in the dining area. It was wonderful. Today was also nice. The Veys took me to a nice park up in Flanders and then I met up with some of the program people and we saw more of the city. Then a couple of us enjoyed a few beers in the old part of the city and relaxed. Tomorrow we have our tour of the city and we are going to have lunch in the Parc Cinquantenaire. It should be wonderful but tiring. I hope that the weather holds up. It never got above 65 today and there was not so much sunshine.
I have been using my French with the family. I am quite proud of myself for my ability to be able to understand probably about 75% of what I am hearing. The family has been wonderful and patient with my French.
I'm tired and already thinking about bed and its only 930.
BUT before I go to bed I would just like to mention that I have not gotten a single email. I know I have only been gone 3 or 4 days, but I want to hear how everyone is doing!
