Buying bread from a man in Brussels …

He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich …

After Bruges, it was time to hit Brussels … So off we went.  The European capital beckoned with it's bright lights, multiculturalism and impressive monuments. 

About this time, we discovered the joys of Big Red Bus tours.  How fantastic is it to be able to go around the city for a fixed price (sometimes for 48 hours) and see so many sights without having to walk… Anything that encourages my pathological laziness is to be applauded.

We spent just 2 days there, soaking up the atmosphere of the city – first stop was of course, Mannekin Pis.  I think we pretty much checked off all Belgian experiences there – waffles, chocolate, friets, beer, to name a few.  (Sorry, Siggi, no moules!)
