Happy holidays from Belgium!

I’ve been in Belgium for 8 days now, and it has been a really great time so far. The Christmas season in Belgium is a bustling time. Besides shopping at malls and Christmas lights, every city has their own Christmas Market. These include food, carnival rides, and alcohol…a lot of alcohol! In the last week I’ve been to several: Hasselt, Genk, Maastricht (Netherlands), and Dusseldorf (Germany). When I lived in Belgium eleven years ago, I lived with two different host families. So it works out very nice that I have one family to spend Christmas Eve with, and one to spend Christmas Day with. It’s been really nice to see old friends, eat some (okay, I’ve eaten a lot) Belgian Fries, and speaking Flemish. Here are some pictures of the different Christmas Markets:
