Long week. We flew over last Saturday, arrived early Sunday morning. Took a couple of hours to explore Brussels before we caught our train to the Netherlands. Spent a few days in 's-Hertgenbosch (pronounced: Cher-toe-gan-bosch) or "'den Bosch" as the locals call it. Beautiful city located east of Amsterdam. Lots of older buildings, canals. many restaurants
Spent 4 days in den Bosch auditing a new company before heading back down to Brussels for the second half of my tour. 2nd audit was in Gent, just northwest of Brussels. We planned our flight back on Sunday which gave us Saturday free to explore Brussels at large.
I won't bore anyone with the audit details, but will give you a few highlights of our tour. The few short hours we spend on Sunday wandering the streets on Brussels early Sunday morning were interesting. I've always been fascinated by the architecture of Europe and the different buildings, monuments, displays one can see simply by taking a walk.
