While eating dinner, we were able to view the remainder of the parade, which must have lasted nearly three hours. Then we went back to Brussels and checked into a different hotel because the apartment is not air-conditioned, and open windows invite a large number of mosquitos to feast on you during the night.
At check in, the clerk asked if I’d like to see the children’s play center. It’s a lovely area with building blocks, books and an Xbox game system, and it’s located in the bar so that kids can play while mom and dad have a drink. Brussels is not only child-friendly, it’s parent-friendly, too.
