... shopping with beautiful embroidery and Belgium chocolates a priority (hope they don't melt in journey ahead!) We stopped at Simon Steven square where a timber dance floor had been installed with locals dancing Argentina tango! The music was great, and we found freshly shucked oysters (while we waited) and had 3 each of the largest we have seen with a glass of champagne to enjoy the entertainment. A little more shopping, then back ...

400 flavored beers

... And still longer until finally it was 7pm and I was hungry.

I climbed out of bed and had a shower, rugged up and went for a walk into town. I remembered the Belgium couple telling me last night that the best place to get frites (fries) was in the main square where the bell tower was so I headed in that direction.

... way over, we picked up some frites and waffles, to enjoy Gavin's last night in Brussels.

Now, Gavin (and his cooking) has left me to fend for myself. I spent most of the day bumming around doing nothing.
