Then the main dish came, which was a giant plate ...
... hot milk, and we also ordered a waffle that came with maple syrup. We found a canal and sat on yet another park bench and had our beautiful hot chocolate and waffles.
It was just gorgeous. Just around the corner was a street market that apparently has been in Brugge for hundreds of years. It was right next to a canal as well. It had lots of antiques and old wares and I bought two rings that were quite unique.
