We finally get oriented with the map and go look at some of the sites. We went to the Atomium, which is like the Eiffel Tower of Belgium. IT's was really neat, I love places where you can see the whole city! Then we went to Grand Place and saw the pissing boy and ate a belgian waffle, mmm tasty!! We went to the museums but we didn't read any of the information plates, I tried to read some but it was no use. So we took some pictures, and got ripped off by a guy who beaconed to you so you could take a picture with him and wouldn't let you go until you put 2 Euros into his bowl..... lesson learned!
Now John is a french fry whore, to say the least. We found EVERY site on the map that suggested it had the best fries and ate them. If we hadn't walked everywhere I would probably be 800lbs. Also if we ate in a restaurant we would choose something safe, that we knew we would like and then something that we had no idea! It was lots of fun, the most suprising thing we got though were meatballs. They were very tasty. I wish I could remember the names of some of these places.
At any rate, we had a wonderful time in Belgium, but the next time I go I hope I'm more out going a meet new people.
