... the road closures. On Saturday we drove to Bruges, which was quaint, like in the movie, but full of tourists and designer shops. Of course, a little clothes shopping had to be done! We also went to the beach at Knokke on the North Sea for an afternoon stroll with the rich and probably famous. On Sunday we went to a small village outside Tournaise, where our Rotary Exchange student, Damien, comes from. ...

Something that South America was lacking was good beer. Since being in Europe we have tried to counter that by finding some good (shall I say real) beer. Where better than Belgium!

It was raining and the city was deserted so I headed home early but ended the day in the corner pub where I had a few Crieks (suggested by my Aussie housemate) - it is a sweet beer ...

I got a text message from Steve, the guy from Brussels who we'd gone over for dinner with, saying he was in Gent for a few hours and was free for a beer if we were around, so we got ready and left a note for Karina before heading out to go into the city to meet him. We ran into her on the street and decided we would just do our own things for the night as she had a few things to do, and some ...
