Brussels Vol. 1

I don't think I ate one vegetable in Belgium but for a good reason: there were too many sweets and beer to consume that my stomach simply did not have enough room! Our meals mainly consisted of a waffle, chocolate, a donut, or street fries but we did treat ourselves to a nice Italian dinner one evening and a nice brunch one morning. 

While it was fun to eat waffles and chocolate and drink beer for three days straight, by the end of the trip our stomachs were quite distended and I don't think I've ever been as happy to get back to my kollegium in Denmark and eat sauteed kale than I was last night!
