... was less enthused, Nav even went to sleep. Oh well. The French countryside was lush green rolling hills with occasional farms. Within an hour the train began to slow and we entered Brussels.

Anyways, after the cheese tasting, we were still hungry so we took a stroll with the group but ended up going off on our own to eat a late lunch/early dinner at Cathrien Brasserie, which caught our ...
