All 366 steps, I counted them

I woke up at 7:00 am so that I could get my stuff together because I really don't want to leave anything behind and having Aaron saying 'I told you so'. We want to try and find a market store so that I could get some Nuttela and Stroopruafels before I left The Netherlands because I need them and when Ingebord or Emiel come to Edmonton for a visit they better, hoping they bring me some...Hint hint. Breakfast consisted of left over pizza and a small Mcflurry that we picked up on our way to the train station. I got on the right train to Brussels and said good-bye to Ingeborg. I switched trains in Brussels and was on my way to Bruge. Once I got there I need to to other walk across town or take a bus, I took a bus which I found easy, it took me pretty close where I needed to go but far enough that I had a nice walk down the streets to the hostel. The hostel was Snuffel Hostel and my room seemed cozy enough for three nights.
I then headed out and decided to really treat myself to a really nice lunch. I took a seat on the outside patio (I don´t think I have eaten once inside yet). I ordered a Bruge Zot beer which is a local beer (duh) and ordered from the €16 lunch menu. For starters I had a salad with bacon, lots and lot of bacon, and for the main dish is was Chicken in this really good cream sauce with potatoes. I also got dessert which was chocolate mousse.

Across the street from where I was eating was the famous chocolatier Dumon. It was so tiny inside but neat. I bought a box of 15 pieces for €5. I have only had a few pieces thus far because I was to save them but I know that will be hard, so far very good num nums.

I decided to work my lunch off by climbing the belfry tower, all 366 steps. It took alot out of me and I really had to push myself. You never know how out of shape you are until you cliimb a belfry tower. The view at the top was worth it though. They were doing construction at the top as well so you could not get the whole 360° view.
The walk down was easier of course, even the guys behind me were impressed at how fast I was going.

The rest of the day I didn´t do much, I was pretty tired from pushing my first five days here pretty hard.
