Week Twenty

Sunday we spent the better part of the morning hanging out at the end of our street watching the 33rd annual 20km de Bruxelles (it is about a half marathon). The street that runs perpendicular to ours was kilometer marker 14km. They had a drum band and got the crowd pumped up.

This year 35,000 people ran the race. Wow. It also gives you a nice perspective about how small Brussels is. They can essentially loop around the whole city in a half marathon.

I can’t seem to find vanilla extract here. It appears they only sell vanilla beans of course.

Each morning I am greeted with these creatures. The slugs here are ridiculous, they are something straight out of a B grade horror movie. This guy was the size of my thumb, my whole thumb.

The days are getting longer, much longer, but it is making for lovely evenings on the terrace. Pretty soon it will not get dark until almost midnight. eek.
