Brussels, Belgium

Last week we had to take a trip into Belgium to do our legality. We met up with quite a few other missionaries in our mission, but from the Netherlands. Together we went to an official office and had to do more paperwork to be legal here. It was a cold day, but our trip up was quite pleasant. We first had to go to France for interview with the Pres. and then drove up. It took us about 2 hrs. Following are some of the streets in Brussels. There are a lot of lovely old building, but also quite a few modern building mixed in amidst the old. The freeway driving is great and we didn't have much traffic, but the little streets are horrid. The drivers are fast and pushy. Many of the streets are narrow and you must be on guard all the time. There are many beautiful statues along the streets and in the parks. The facades of many of the old homes arejust exquisite. There are many tunnels, many beautiful arches, and lots of people everywhere. The first picture is of Helig University. Pictures 7 through 10 are of different embassies. They display their country's flag in front of each embassy

LOL about the fast and pushy comment. So very true--I have never driven in Europe and am not sure I could.
