Brussels is kid-friendly, who knew?


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.
