Antwerp, Belgium

... And we're officially off and touring Europe. For our first weekend together, we took the train 2 hours away to the 2nd largest city in Belgium, Antwerp. (Or as the locals call it, Antwerpen.) Cool city - we basically ate Belgium chocolate, Belgium waffles, drank Belgium beer and roamed around the cobblestone streets. Antwerp is apparently the fashion capital of Europe and also famous for diamonds (although Gene conveniently took me for a tour of area on Sunday, when everything is closed). Smart man.

Kiddos, I noticed that you used the phrase 'home sweet Amsterdam' on your blog. When you arrive back home we expect a song to the tune of 'sweet home alabama' that uses lyrics of your two year stint.
