After a fun day in Brussels, the class started by visiting the Manneken Pis and buying chocolates, waffles, and beer as we walked back to the train station for Bruges. Once arriving in Bruges, we sampled the local food for lunch where I had Flemish beef stew, and while delicious tasted no differently than what we have back home. After divulging in the local cuisine, we saw Michelangelo’s Madonna and Child which was spectacular to see. Afterwards we took a relaxing canal tour taking in as much of the local scenery as possible. The trip concluded at the Belfry of Bruges, but unfortunately too late to climb the 366 steps. Bruges is a quaint town with a lot of history, and for only a short visit the class saw a lot of great architecture, art, and history.
