... Marc pointed out we should walk to Grand Place, so we did!
We started walking in the wrong direction and the area we were walking in was extremely run down and dirty. But after a couple of mins once we were orientated, we made our way in the general direction to Grand Place.

I struggled through the conversation for a few hours and then we went home for me to pack for my flight to Thailand!
