We arrived in Brussels in the miserable rain, we finally found our hotel but were drenched. After it stopped raining we went up to the shops to get some samples of local beer, I came back to the hotel with about 10 different beers ranging from 12% to 8% alcohol, they sure do make them strong here. The next day I had headache to match the percentages. We walked around the city and saw most of the sites including the Mannequin Pis. We also visited the cartoon museum, Brussels is the home of Tin tin etc.
