A little break from Paris, and mostly photos.
We took the train to Bonn from Paris for our conference. 1st class seats were only 10 Euro more and included free internet and lunch, so it was a nice 4 hour comfy ride, watching the countryside roll by. I’ve never taken a train in Europe (and had only ever been to Barcelona and the south of France, anyway) so this was gorgeous. The train from Bonn to Bruxelles 2 days later was lovely too, Belgium looks like Vermont but with ancient stone houses!
On to Bruxelles, where we have less than 24 hours, but only one 3 hour meeting, so we run around a lot. I adore this city, it’s so, so gorgeous and vibrant.
