Day 12

New Years Day

semi-overcast 3 °C

Happy New Year! Today we finally slept in! We didn't wake up until noon. We watched some BBC world (way better then CNN!) and checked email, etc...

Then we went for a walk in our neighbourhood. According to my Frommers Book, we are staying in the Quartier Europeen. We walked around and found the Parc du Cinquantenaire, which is huge and has a big European looking gate at the entrance. We also found the Parc Leopald which has a huge pond in the middle of it and it is surrounded by the Parliment European buildings.

There was an actual grocery store open (which is awesome since all the restaurants in this area seem to be closed). We picked up a salad and sandwich for dinner.

Tomorrow we are going to take the metro to the central station and check our the Palace Royale and the centre square. We'll see what Brussels is all about.

I have today, I'm becoming a fan of the BBC. They have the best British soaps! My new fav is called the Eastenders. I'm going to try and stream it when I get home ;)

Til tomorrow.
