Happy Sunday from Belgium!
After a long, (but great), day in Bruges yesterday, we are relaxing today and tomorrow before classes start on Tuesday (well for me). Some others start tomorrow but we are all taking different courses! I posted a ton of pictures from the smaller city of Bruges this morning! We discovered by far the most amazing thing we have seen thus far - the International Market in the city! It's only on Sundays until 2:00 so we had to be there early, but boy was it worth it! We got grapes, strawberries, oranges, lemons, pineapples, potatoes, carrots, peppers, mushrooms, deli meat for lunch (and swiss cheese), along with apricots, and a rolling shopping cart to take to the store (stores don't provide shopping carts you can leave with here and most people walk or take the subway, so you have to provide your own shopping bags), for a low price of about 35 euros!! They had all types of toiletries and clothing as well for cheap cheap cheap! Needless to say, we won't be going to the Supermarkets anymore when the fresh stuff is so cheap on sunday mornings!
Even the bag, socks (12 pairs), and underwear were all only 1 euro each!!!
