We had breakfast at Charli Boulangerie. It was excellent. The smell of warm fresh baked bread fills the café. The cappuccinos had a hint of sweetness. I think it was the sugar in the milk. I don’t think they added sugar. So many choices of baked items. I chose a croissant. I never eat croissants in the US, but I can’t pass them up here. They are light and airy with a slight crisp on the outside. I love how moist they are too.
We took a different tram to Rene Magritte’s museum. We thought we were lost when we started walking down a residential area. Outside a home was a sign for the museum. We actually got to visit Rene Magritte’s home. That was a fun accident. We were able to walk all through the home and learn the history of Magritte. We both enjoyed it so much we wanted to see more. So we did. We took another tram to Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. We saw the collection of Rene Magritte. I think it’s worth paying a little extra for the audio tour. It’s overwhelming seeing three floors of art when you do not hear some of the stories behind the paintings. Most audio tours do not cover all the art pieces, but it’s nice to have an understanding of some and then apply that to other works in the same exhibition.
After the museum we walked to Les Galeries Saint Hubert to have hot chocolate. Oh my goodness, this was fancy hot chocolate. I accidently ordered two. When they brought our little pots of hot chocolate, they also brought a side of whip cream, steamed milk (might have been cream), two cookies, and a spoon. We didn’t know where to start. Do we pour the milk in or chocolate in first? Wow, this chocolate milk was so dark, rich AND delicious!
Still so much to do and see!
