More Paris and Belgium

We took lots of pictures of the architecture and scenery in Paris. Here are some of the highlights:

Notre Dame

We decided to take a day trip to Brussels, Belgium. We took a train and it was a wonderful way to travel and it was only and a 1 1/2 hour train trip. In Brussels, we took the double decker bus tour to tour the city. We spent most of our day in the grand place square where there are beautiful buildings, many chocolate chops and little restaurants. We also found a small craft fair during our stroll where I got an interesting pendant. We sampled lots of chocolates and had the best caramel hot chocolate. Ummm good! We brought home some too.

We took a segway tour our last full day in Paris. The weather started out rainy but cleared up shortly after our tour began. Riding the segway around the city sure was a highlight. We were able to see many sites all around the city quickly. During our tour, we took a short break at an outdoor restaurant in the park next to the Louve. I had scrumptous chocolate crepes and Mike had an ice cream sundae. We had dinner our last night at a restaurant called Meating. They are known for their steaks which are imported from the United States. We walked home and on our way we had desert at .. We stopped at and bought delicious macaroons of different flavors to bring home.
