Thalys Train --> On route, Destination: Brussels, Belgium
**Couldn't find our seats, o well just went to the very last cart and sat with a silly man who was pissy and annoying.. Freakin' L7 mofo, needs silence when the train conductor is talking.. whatever.. we haven't even started moving yet.. how close could your stop be. Anyways.
09:44a - still on train
=) Funny train story.. after a few stops, we've finally been inhabited by other passengers. Some dude, and a French mom & 4 kids. Mom was talking to dude. Baby was super crying (which made me laugh cuz Mr. L7 was still here). The young girl was sitting next to Tessa. She was sitting quite close to her, she had her backpack leaning on Tessa.
08:07pm - Thalys Train --> on route to Cologne
I think I fell asleep, dammit, and there are hella folks in the area.. oops.. (how embarassing). [P.S. Note: on iPod listening to Torn by Letoya Luckett =( sad face.. reminds me of R.R. imishim <3 heart]. Well, well, well.. Brussels can I say was super beautiful "se manifiq" or shall I say "fantastico" (so yeah we're all not sure if that is italian or what.
Walked again to the sq. when it started to pour Belgium rain. hehehe since it was raining we trickled into the Belgium Bier museum. Pretty cool.. cutiekins guy there who told us that it is free to look around.. hee hee.. then we started again on foot or shall i say "le pie (accent over the i)" , to look for the Mannekan Pis and on the way we found super cool stores to go into "se manifiq" .
Then walk, walk again.. and I guess we looked sorta lost and this extremely friendly Flemish woman asked us in French (Tessa ur on.. French skills) "What are you looking for?" and we were looking for St. Nicolas church ans she steered us in the right direction =). We reached St. Nicolas in about 2-3 mins. Photo, photo and more photos. Then it became free time till 6:30pm. I spent a lot of money.. haha lol. But yeah overall.. absolutely fabulous place to go though. If we go again, it will be day trip shopping and now we're on the train again. I think our stop is coming up .. yay.. such a great experience. I don't know why but riding on the train from Germany to Belgium and Belgium to Germany made me feel like such a traveller. I loved it!!
