I ride the train until Brussels North Station, where a cold wind gives me a -warm- welcome xD. I see my Hotel from the station, it's a high tower located in the Place Rogier. The interior of the Hotel makes me smile: definitely it is going to be a nice stay. It is confirmed when the receptionist tells me that my room is in 25th floor, so I can enjoy a wonderful view from my room.
After taking a shower, I go from Rogier Place to the Grand Place, where the city hall is 'dancing' at the rythm of Christmas songs. I love it! People everywhere eating hot dogs and french fries. Happiness.
I also walk to the theatre 'La Monnaie', the Broukère Place, Notre Dame aux Riches-Claires, Saint Nicolas Church (lovely surrounded by shops and little houses), Saint-Gery Place, and, of course, the Bourse building, where there are lots of small Christmas stalls.
At 21pm, I decide to go back to the Hotel, have a dinner while enjoying the view and then go to sleep because I have lots of plans for tomorrow.
