Paris and Brussels, December 2007

Paris didn't connect with me on this trip. Too much dog shit, frantic shoppers, bears who ignored me at the bar, and rude annoying Paris street kids.

But Brussels? I have a new favorite European city. Wow... on the first night there, I was entranced by a huge Christmas market that ran down the hill from our hotel like it was a ski run. The city was great, and the people really friendly. What can you say about a place known for beer, french fries, comic strips, and chocolate? It's french without being pretentious.

Here are some things I saw. But I hope to go back there soon and see more. Bruge, Ghent, Antwerp, and go up to Amsterdam. Maybe I'll stop learning French... I could never speak it well anyway. I'll switch to German and make my way east across Europe.

Here is my first ever attempt at a flikr set for the trip... because all the cool kids are doing it.
