Belgian Beer the best thing since Sneetjes Brood

Ahhh… home again in Leuven. Did I mention I love this place? Despite being home to the most indifferent service you will find anywhere in the world. Honestly, the staff in every bar or restaurant looks annoyed to be there, “Sigh… do you want something else??? Jeez, where do these customers get off?”

But it is a beautiful place. I’m staying at the Novotel across from the Stella Artois brewery. Close to the train station, and about a 20 minute walk from the Stadhuis, and the center of it all, but convenient. And the bonus is I can open the window and smell the beer brewing. No better smell in the world, with the possible exceptions of fresh baked bread, and newborn babies. (OK, the babies win hands down)

I got out for a stroll though, and laid in a good supply of Leonidas Pralines. I also took some photos which I will now share. Tomorrow I will go to the flea market in the morning, and shop the vendors for cool beer glasses to add to my collection. Such a decadent life I lead. God Bless.
