Our first stop was close to the town of Westvleteren at Sain-Sixtus Abdij, one of the world's best breweries (based on popular opinion). One of only 6 official trappist breweries in Belgium, and one that hasn’t significantly changed their habits since 1946 (and still restrict their beer production to the same quantities as this date).

In 1945, an American GI found the statue in a salt mine in Austria. Eisenhower made sure it was returned to Bruges, and that is why the people of Bruges all like Ike.

I actually found the museum to be quiet interesting. In one room, they showed a short film on the process a potato goes from ...
