European campaign - after action report

Thanksgiving was quiet.  Ate too much, watched some football, ventured out on Friday for a few bargains.  I am still trying to get over my jet lag and get back on Texas time from last week’s trip to Europe.  

The whole trip to Belgium/England was pretty neat.  When I wasn’t at the office, I spent time exploring the downtown area and taking lots of pictures of various sites/buildings.  I only wish I had more time and it was a wee bit warmer time.  Some of the local sites in Brussels:

Chocolaterie Manneken

Christmas on the plaza

Pick a restaurant

More Chocolate

The crowd around Manneken Pis

One of many, many excellent local brews

The plaza around the Grand Palace
In the spirit of giving thanks, I am thankful for the opportunity for this trip and a chance to visit some new and interesting places.

Wow, those photos are fabulous. But, you went shopping on Black Friday? You're braver than I'll EVER be!

Heard some nasty Black Friday stories this year - a woman Macing her way to the front, etc. Hope you had less trouble!

Glad you had a good trip - I have never been to Belgium, but you make it sound pretty good. Might venture over there some time!

Great photos! Glad you got back safe and sound and in time for a nice Thanksgiving.

I didn't do any Black Friday shopping but am finding some nice online bargains tonight.

Love the photos! I would love to stroll around that outdoor cafe area. Black Friday? Not a participant, but I'm glad you survived.
