Not sure what i wrote about amsterdam. Now i'm jumping to Brussels. The place is horribly dirty & unkept, at least it seemed that way when i was on the way there. Amazing that it was the cultural capital of the world ( Am i right? ) & that its the base of the European Union. The central station which i got off was horrible. It didn't look like they finished building the structure and it was incredibly dirty; i suppose they had good reason to keep it dimly lit. In words of the dutch i met at the hostel in amsterdam "what it looks on the inside, is not what it is on the inside".
St Micheal's Cathedral was magnificient however. The white stoned blocks that formed the church was really something else. This time, the inside was just as impressive as the outside. There were guardian angel statues on every pillar on either side of the church all the way to the altar.
The grand place of Brussels took my breath away. It was simply majestic. I have not seen such elaborate detail on all the fronts of each and every building at the square. Of course, i took the opportunity to buy chocolate (mistake, cheaper everywhere else, i'm told chocolate in the department stores are just as good for half the price!) and have a belgian waffles. There was a girl flaunting her opera(tic?) talents in the square. If she never made it into the theatres how good are the ones that did?!??
Other than these two places, there isn't much else to say. Took pictures with a smurf and tintin though!
Headed to Bruges... i was considering not going there. But thank God i did. On the way there, i saw a guy that had the face of an angel. Honestly... my god, he was the breathing form of an iconize statue! He was reading to kill a mockingbird, pretty slowly. I guess he's learning english! & no i'm not gay!
Met a couple of twats on the way to the hostel in Bruges. They were from Philly, USA. They disapproved of my whimsical way of travel. I will elaborate next time. My time is up!
