Just arrived in Belgium after a very short week in Paris. Not nearly enough time to see all we wanted to see and experience. We ended up seeing most everything we wanted but to really experience things we didn't have near enough time. Were at the hostel here right by the train station. Man you come out of the station and there is a parking lot. NOt for cars, it's like 10000 bicycles. This place is a little cooler temperature wise than spain was, not much but some. Hostel is nice, the group stayed here last year and our TA spike was part of that group so the guy that runs the place, Rule, remembers him. Rule is a pretty crazy funny guy. Were in rooms of 4 again, but the rooms are nice and after a week alone it's tolerable. Fairly small city compared to Paris. But it has a big univeristy and a lot of history.
