Trip Report Almost Interesting, Nearly Exciting, Ambivalent Brussels

Jump to last reply

My first disappointment was that TSA did not ask me to take off my shoes. I wore my lucky poker socks which have hearts and obvious expressions of love. I thought they would liven the security line but the opportunity did not arise.

The well traveled are on opposite sides regarding Brussels, the skip it group, and the "'Oh, no, you must go.'' The latter decided smaller. But you must land somewhere and Brussels seemed as good as place any where CNN would not follow and two days seems like a unfair amount of time to make a determination one way or the other but we do not care.

We are staying at the Bloom Hotel which seems like a hipster hangout despite the rather small underwater mining convention going on. Everyone behind the counter is either handsome or beautiful and there are hints that they know something about fashion or graphic design. Each room has its on individual mural painted on the wall of varying styles. Ours has a suggestion of a Japanese influence with lilac flowers and black highlights.

Bleary-eyed from the flight we walk to the Grand Place on Rue So So and the Boulevard Medioc finally turning down a pedestrian only street lined with American mall stores. The Grand Place is magnificent with it's 17th century gilded gold guild halls and older governmental buildings. Tourist restaurants and shops abound. We walked into one restaurant but left immediately before we could be fleeced. The restaurant where we ate, Fallstaff was not much better. I had duck with apples which was as tough as Donald, and Andrea had sausage and stompe, which was a shade better.
We bought some chocolate at Elisabeth's, which included something that looked like a Mallomar and the cracker was the best part.

Tomorrow Magritte and frites.
