I’m in Brussels for a quick work trip. Took the Eurostar over this afternoon and of course the first thing I did upon arriving was get a gauffre in the gare. Because that’s what you do.
. . . followed by some serious Belgian atmosphere at the Grand Place.
It’s crazy to think it has been almost 20 years since I first lived in Belgium! So much is familiar, and so much has changed. Seemingly for the better, too–the overall feel is much cleaner and more prosperous than what I remember.
