Our first day in Brussels was necessarily a light one, mostly because of our overwhelming exhaustion. We did spend an incredible afternoon walking around the city center and the Grand Place, currently home to the annual Winter Festival. Stalls line the cobblestone streets selling everything from ornaments to the ever popular gluhwein, a steaming mug of mulled wine. Brussels is also world famous for its tradition of comic strips, which can be seen throughout the city in street art and at the surprisingly interesting Comic Strip Museum. Later that night we walked through the shops lit brightly for the holidays and enjoyed a fresh waffle as the snow before to powder everything in sight. Pretty perfect.
