I took a tour of the Medecins Sans Frontieres office in Brussels where AG and Catherine work. They go to all the worst places on earth and provide medical care without regard to political affiliation. These folks do some great work under extremely difficult circumstances and without the best funding. Hey they won a Nobel Prize for it too.
Lunch with AG had to be at Lyon's for mussels, french fries, and cafe. So it was. The food was great and I learned to eat like a native by using one mussel shell as pincers to pick out the meat of all the rest.
The European Union Parliament is located in Brussels and is an impressive collection of buildings. The whole city is filthy with embassies and motorcades.
I treated the family to a night out...at Pizza Hut!
