Today we spent driving home as my flight was the next morning. It was really sad to say goodbye to everyone, but I know it cemented our friendships even more that I’m now sure I will see everyone again>>Just in which country, I know not!
This morning we got up and took a driving tour of all the main sites in and around Brussels. We saw the Atomium, Manequin Pis, the Royal Palace and more. Delphine met up with us and we went to a flea market to look around. We also stopped by for some lunch near the Grand Central Plaza, and had some coffee at the cafÃ© that I really liked. “la vache qui regarde passer les trains”
That night, JÃ¼rgen and I went to KÃ¶perwelten. This exhibition was the coolest thing I had ever seen. It was in an old butchery that gave such an eerie feel to all the exhibits we were seeing of the human body. Really really interesting. We then went home to meet up with everyone and go out for Pitas and french fries.
From Trier, we drove to Luxembourg and spent a few hours looking around Luxembourg City. After walking, we drove onward to Belgium to meet some friends.
We got up early to drive to Saaburg for a small visit. We went up to the fortress that overlooks the entire town, and it was definitely gorgeous. The snow covered houses and the quaintness of this town really made such a charming impression. It’s like, ‘this is what winter is’ type of feeling because it’s completely what you think of for a cold winter day. Smoke stacks puffing little clouds of smoke, complete quiet, and a small wind of chill blowing in the air.
