Paris to Antwerp
|Brussels on our way to Antwerp, at dusk|
Digi slept part of the way, and I watched the scenery most of the time. We tried to guess at which point that we had entered Belgium. I told Digi, Belgium would have two languages on their signage. However, I forgot to note about it. Probably because we are so used to multiple languages signage. Anyway, we had a stop somewhere between Paris and Brussels, and had a lunch of granola bars, bread, cheese and juices. Then at sunset, we had another stop, this time in the center of Brussels. We stretched our feet and also got some more bread and cheese, as well some fruits and vegetables from a convenience store, nearby. I was looking forward for a home cooked meal. But Olivier beat us to it, ingredient wise. He had filled his pantry with essential Asian foods - rice, noodles, soy sauce, hot sauce; and some unique Belgian's treats - waffles, chocolate sauce and biscuit spread. He even had a wok.

|Market Square, Antwerp|
Antwerp Market Square looked very similar to Brussels Grand Place. As shopping was the furthest from our minds, we only window shopped - diamonds, and video games too.We bought some chocolates though. Heh, that we did not plan to resist. Not at all.
Although it was the end of February, it was still cold. Digital said, "Perhaps there will be snow." And boy, he got snow flakes falling on him while walking the street of Antwerp. The snow melted even before they touch the ground. But it was still snow. "Whoopie!!" The first ever snow in Digital's life. It was so cool.
On the 2nd day of Antwerp, we slept in, and did our laundry. Also cooked more rice and more chicken. It was like we never had enough rice and chicken. And the waffles, yup, we eat plenty of them, with chocolate sauce, all from Olivier's pantry. Darn excellent base camp his place was.
