We arrived Friday night at 10pm, went straight to the hotel, got dinner near the hotel and went to bed. Got up on Saturday took the metro to Bourse station. Walked to Grand Palace looked at the hotel deville, eat a Belgian waffle in the square, wandered around enjoying the sun. From there we walked down to see Manneken-Pis (the wee boy pissing above), from there we headed for a bit of chocolate taste testing in place du grand sablon. Walked up to the Palais de Justice, over to the jardin d'egmont, and up to the musee des beaux arts, through parc de bruxelles, continued up to parc du jardin botanique. Then took the metro back to Bourse station to go to dinner at Le Flagstaff where we both had mussels - YUM! Back to the hotel for sleep. Sunday was sunny & warm again so we headed up to the Atonium (atom of iron from 1956 world fair) and then back to the grand palace for yet another waffle, wonder about the souvenir shops and hang out in the sun. Dinner near the hotel at a really nice place and then back to the Eurostar for our train back to London.
It was a great weekend break!!!
