I totally forgot to blog about Belgium! Two of my friends from school and I met up in Brussels for a weekend in October. We had perfect timing. There were so many cool things happening that weekend. First of all, we got to see the Mannequin Pis statue get a new costume. This does not happen very often and we were there to see the whole ceremony. It was hilarious. And because we were there on October 15th, we walked right into the Occupy Brussels demonstration in the middle of the city. Hundreds of people were there waving flags, chanting, holding up funny and provocative signs. It was insane. Check out some photos!
PS So much chocolate. And Belgian Waffles. Yum.
