At Brussels Airport

Finally at Belgium

Well I'm a little bit less sleeped and at Brussels Airport, next stop, the train station.

I have to take 2 trains, one to the Brussels North and the other to Antwerp, the price 7 Euros, 1.30 min Traject. But there are no information on the station, I take a look at the people, mmmm, those are spaniards.... right!

I don't know what happens with spaniards, but is easy to recognice us, we should make an special silly face when we are lost! :)

Nobody knows nothing, I take the train and we will see...

No problem I arrive at Brussels nord, look for my train and wait a little... wow a lot of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and a couple, he a muslim with a lovely blue eyed and round small girl, she with an strict burka, gloves also, OMG! I'm having hot, how does she feel?  

On the train the thing gone worst, no AC and no seat Available, more hot and this woman completely covered!

Finally I arrive at ANTWERP! 11,15h 

Antwerp

Let me tell you, that this is the second time that I burn Antwerp, the first time was 15 years ago or something like this, since then, the city has been rebuilded, well they have to finish the Train Station!

I'm Joking! :p 

First stop: Waffles! Explore a little bit the station an I take my first Belgian Waffle.

Waffles!
... Yes I was Virgin!

Really good! This is my breakfast!

Now it comes the scary moment: Call to Sylvie 1.....No responding! Call to Sylvie 2, ups is a guy: Kornifalig! He tell me that the new meeting point is at Antwerp Central at 13h, :(  I have to spend 1.30h. I begin to walk walk walk and arrive to groenplats in 15 minutes, take a few pics and back to the station! have to spend 45 minutes more so I explore all the station...

The meeting hour is closer I wait on the door station and I seem to recognice a guy he seems TB Latinlover... We were closer the one to the other but I'm not sure 10 minutes later he quit.

Still waiting and calling to sylvie and Kornifalig till 13,35h!!! finally we meet up, the 2º TB friend that I meet!

Since this moment, the things change completely!

Meetup

Gone to Groenplats by Tram, once there the people was having a drink, easy to recognice a few of them:

Sylvie, Wendy, James, Jefrois.

The girls eating Belgium Fries!
.. 3x Kisses(Belgian style) I like it! And then I sit on the table...

Eh? Wait a moment! On the table in front, I saw her : Devika!

The other table is TB also! Gone there and Devi recognices me! We have talked a few times about our carnaval Blogs! months ago! Once I have been presented to everyone: BEEEEER and Pics!

Mum moment

Me: Riiiiiiiiiiiiing! "Mum???........ Hello, Pretty!" 

Mum: "Where are you? All the family is waiting for you (aunts, cousins,...12 People)? " 

Me: "I'm at Antwerp, Belgium" 

Mum: "Ok, OK, when you'll be here, in 10 minutes?" 

Me: "I'm at  A N T W E R P, Belgium!" 

Mum: "Stop Joking! 10 minutes?" 

Me: "It's truth! I told you a couple of weeks ago, I was out this weekend" 

Mum: "You didn't say me nothing bla bla bla "

I have to buy a present for her, she was angry!

Before that , we gone to have a cultural visit to the city: Catedral, Castle, City hall, chocolate shop.

I Surrender!
.. while the girls go "SHOPING!"

And back to drink, pics and joking! Then Kornifalig, James and I went to the Castle to leave my bag, change the T-shirt and Back to Groenplats.

Dinner

Later we took the Tram and we go to the restaurant To eat Ribs and have really fun! Good wine, a lots of food, more pics I like it, and only 22 Euros!!

Before that to Groeplats have a cup and to a kind of pub really far away from our domains! The pub was empty, but we were a lot of people so it wasn't so bad! A couple of drinks later, I went out and I was assaulted by Devika and Marloes! Of course, I surrender inmediately! ha ha ha  We make really great pics (my lovely profile pic)!

Houston, we have problems

Devi´s room mate gone to bed a couple of hours ago, her cellular Batt dies and there´s no way to contact with him or someone from the hostel, it was a really bad moment, she was very very sad, finally after an international call we could find the telephone nº of someone from the Hostel, and the party still continued to an other Pub.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Pic by Alex

The great final

At "The laundry...." Yeah, the best of that night, funs a lot and Devi forgot that bad moment! Everybody dancing, a guy's Streeptease  :(  really crappy! and incredible pics taken by Alex!

Marloes and Bart leave minutes early than the rest! At 3,30AM we decide to leave! Someone gone with the Castle's Limousine and we gone with TAXI!

You know the castle remains closed till 4 AM, we have to wait a few minutes, there streeptease, drinks, smoke and talk talk talk.. till Jefrois leaves us, he had to go to Paris. The night  finished at 5 or 6AM
