Welcome to Belgium

Today I drove from Walldorf to Brussels. It took about 4 hours as I passed through beautiful forested hills. I entered Brussels at 6pm, but did not get to the hotel until 8:30. Apparently there was yet another strike here, like I have experienced in France, Greece, etc, etc.

Fortunately, my perseverance was rewarded in the hotel restaurant with a selection of a dozen Belgian beers, including the Rochefort 8. I have been wanting to try this one for some time, and am glad I did. Think Chimay Blue with more meat on the bone - it is a meal by itself!
