Atomimum! We saw it from a distance the first time we went to Brussels but I didn't think I'd have the courage to walk around in those tiny stairways inside this giant atom. But you have to be brave in front of new friends. So I was. And we went. And it was pretty cool. Too bad the rain has found us finally and the view wasn't as great as it might have been. I've enjoyed the sun while it lasted though!
Somehow, and honestly, I surprised myself that we did it, we met up with Chris in the middle of Brussels with one phone, two metros, a bus ride and a walk between us. From there we headed to Delirium, an underground bar with 2004 beers on tap. It was in the Guinness Book of World Records. Crazy. I got a Coke.
The city is still beautiful at night. Maybe even more so. Once it stopped raining it really turned into a spectacular evening.
After meeting up with Chris, he told me we were headed to a fancy night out at a great restaurant. And I know, I know, I'm supposed to be exploring the new foods, loving the new tastes...but really all I've had every time we've gone out is Spaghetti Bolognaise. It's not my fault, its the only thing I can understand on the menu. So you can see why, as we were wandering towards our restaurant, and passed a Pizza Hut, I just stopped moving. Luckily Chris is a very understanding guy, and in we went. And um, yum. :)
Now I'm sitting with my leg propped up and my achilles resting on a block of ice because these cobblestones have maimed me. It'll be rest, ice, compression and elevation for me instead of running 60-90 minutes the next few days. So I'll definitely be back tomorrow, see you then!
