Trip to Brussels over the weekend was good: went to a beautiful town called Ghent on the Saturday, out for a Thai and to a traditional Belgian cafe, Cafe Cirio for a few beers. Saturday's booze count:
- Hoegaarden Premier Cru
- Two glasses of some rather too sweet Gewurztraminer
- A brand of Gueuze, whose name I forget
- I think I had another, but I really can't remember
Sunday was spent on a wander around the centre of Brussels including the Grand Place (astonishing), a Chimay in the Cafe Metropole, then to the Horta Museum (virtual tour), a gorgeous Art Nouveau house.
We were staying with friends of the gf, whose hospitality was magnificent, including providing wonderful breakfasts and a lovely dinner on Sunday evening before our Eurostar trip back. Thanks!
