Having stayed now in Brussels for some year has given me the knowledge to stay in Brussels this day. This day is a huge shopping day in Brussels and the Christmas market are having their biggest day of the season this day.

I had told my friend Jacob that he should stay and enjoy this day in Brussels and not fly back to Copenhagen so soon.  We went into the city centre and started by walking the Christmas Market which always has its centre at the old fish market next to the church of St. Katelijne at Brandhoutkaai and a smaller one at St. Katelijne plain.

We arrived very early and the market was not crowded which was nice for a change. At the market you can find all kind of stuff but mainly a lot of different food and beverage. We walked down the big Paris wheel where Jacob had to taste the Frites. He got a huge portion with a large click of mayo which is the traditional way of serving the frites here.

We continued our walk in the city for some time before my friend insisted that we should go and visit the La Morte Subite which to him is a must when visiting Brussels. It is for him a must to sit there and enjoy a cold Grimbergen Blond and phone his friends back in Denmark and explain what he is doing.
