April 18th, 2010

Sunday took us to one of my old wards in Brussels, located near the Hotel de Ville and Louise metro stops.  Happily enough, the ward still remembered me, six years after my return.  My parents went to the English speaking Sunday School class, where they happened to meet the Consul General of the American embassy in Brussels.  This proved to be very fortunate, as he was able to arrange for them to have temporary visas issued to them on Monday.

After church we visited the Cinquantenaire, a park dedicated to Belgium's independence and a museum of war history.

Nothing more romantic than Belgian independence. 

After this we visited the European Union headquarters downtown.  Brussels is the capitol of the European Union so there's plenty infrastructure to see.

Educational duties taken care of, we went to the Grand Place once again for Italian food.  Though we never visited Italy, Italian restaurants were a common theme on our trip, and it was inevitably delicious. It also gave us a chance to see the Grand Place during the day.
