Bruges, Belgium

Saturday and Sunday

I caught the 11:45 pm night train from Milan to Paris. They were sold out but someone advised me to go to the conductor of the 1st car and ask if there was room. For cash there was, 45 euros got me a bed in the sleeper car. I arrived in Paris the next morning and got another train to Brussels to catch the Bruges connection. Bruges has one of the most beautiful old city centers that I have seen in Europe. Belgium is famous for beer, lace, chocolate and frites {french fries} , except the use mayo rather than ketchup. The fountain had soap bubbles in it.
