Our Christmas Vacation: Day Two
Hello! I have finally slept a whole night through, and I feel fantastic. It's nearly 11 AM, and we've just decided that today we're going to go to downtown Brussels and see a cathedral and a museum (not the Christmas market, which is set for tomorrow).
Yesterday, we went to Bruges, which was like "walking around in a snowglobe," said Melissa.
Yeah, pretty much. I could write about the beguinage and the old mansion funded by beer taxes and the canals and Minnewater, but why don't I just show you pictures? That was the point of the place, for us. To see pretty old things.
Me, along one of the many canals in Bruges, with a monument in the background. The canals were frozen over, well enough at least for the ducks to walk around on top of the ice.

Melissa couldn't help but take this picture of chocolate boobs. There were chocolate shops everywhere:
