After a shower and a quick breakfast, said good-bye to Paul's parents and hopped on train to Dol. Changed in Dol for Paris. Full compartment.

Took a few minutes to figure how to get from Montaparasee to Gare du Nord (Metro). Trained packed. Metro doesn't run on track but on wheels/tires.

Made train to Antwerpen. Extremely crowded. Many people standing. Managed to find two seats in a compartment. Train went on to Amsterdam. In Brussels, moved to font section of train. Still crowded. Lots of reserved seats.

Detrained in Berchem. No hotels so had to take commuter to main station in Antwerpen. found cheap, really tacky hotel. At leats our room was fairly bright and cheery, even if cramped.

Returned to Berchem. Had huge inexpensive Chinese dinner. Were the only customers the entire time. Truly suspect that our waitress was also the cook.
