Brussels and all its' mussels.....

During the March break, my parents and I visited Brussels, the capital city of Belgium. Before we saw any tourist attractions we went to our hotel the Radisson Park-in. After checking in, we got down to business and bought tickets to Bruges and Ghent. The train ride was amazing. Both Bruges and Ghent had a lot of antique shops and some fascinating buildings. We also visited a few churches - the Basilica of the Holy blood and Church of our Lady of Bruges. The church’s architecture was stunning, it was all done up with huge pretty murals on the walls. Another tourist attraction in Brussels was the Manneken Pis,  a sculpture of a bronze boy peeing into a fountain. Manneken Pis also happens to be the symbol of the city of Brussels. What’s interesting about the boy is that they dress him up for different celebrations and events. For dinner, we went to a place called l’Escale they served us shrimp roasted in white wine. Delish!!!  I had some local Belgian pasta. The food was really good. The next day we went to a market which was really bustling with people. We got some fresh fruits and vegetables, then some chocolates and sweets from a candy mstore. Brussels was a lot of fun! I hope I can visit again soon.
