The men had a full day of meetings in Brussels at the EU, so I had the day to look around! I did some walking by the hotel.
Husband saw this neat modern building which incorporated old window frames on its glass face.
A strawberry crepe seemed like a great idea for breakfast, and it WAS!
I cabbed it to a nearby shopping area. Lovely old buildings and cobbled streets.
I can't resist ornate doors and old churches.
I plan to make some kind of necklace with my antique Brussels buttons.

Saw this crazy car on a rainy Paris morning when we got to the office where husband was to speak on an international trade issues panel.
Prepping with David G.and polishing presentation.
A farmer's perspective on international trade issues.
Eight speakers and moderator.
After the Q and A finished around 6, we gathered our luggage and headed to Brussels where the men had more meetings the next day.
