Bonjour! We've arrived in Belgium, and I blogged about it over yonder.
I have to say, this city, Brussels, is absolutely beautiful. The architecture is very clean and... somehow different from the Roman aesthetic, though I can't quite explain why. It's very French! I love the wider streets and all of the cute cookie and candy shops. It's a good thing that my savory-tooth is a stronger force than my sweet-tooth, because my waistline would not thank me for it later if I took advantage of all the sweets this place has to offer.
I love the accents, I love the French style (which I blogged about over yonder), I love the weather, I love the fact that they have Mexican food and burgers and Italian food all next to each other, I love the architecture, and I love the fact that it's a colorful city.
Basically, I've fallen in love with Belgium and I've only been here two days. And I have slept through majority of that time span.
My parents are a little bit jealous that I went to bed at 10:30 last night and slept in while they were running errands. When they returned from said errands, at 2:00 in the afternoon, I was still asleep. And there was not one single second throughout that time that I even lifted, or even THOUGHT about lifting, an eyelid.
Being a teenager with the capacity to sleep when given a soft bed and a pillow is pretty much the best thing in the world.
I'm going to take some pictures soon, but every time we've gone out, I've been overwhelmed by just taking it all in and have thus become forgetful of my camera. But I'll be sure to snap some soon!
And, oh happy day, a family from my online school lives very near Brussels. But not just a family. One of the sweetest, most wonderful families I've ever had the privilege to meet. Also, I may be able to attend a school here starting in the Fall, just to take math and science while I'll continue to homeschool for the rest of my subjects. Plus, the British theatre scene here is apparently fantastic, so I'll try to inject myself there. Suffice it to say, I don't think I'll have any trouble making friends!
I have to unpack and get ready for bed (It's almost 10:30 and the sun hasn't even gone down), but I'll catch you on the flip side.
