Day 6:(Belgium, France)
Arrived at Brussel, the capital city of Belgium. Visited the Atomium and the famous Mannekan Pis.
This is a place famous also for Belgium hand make chocolates. Belgium is the only country which we didn’t put up a night there. We arrived at Paris after 4 hours drive on the highway. FYI, most of the highways in Europe is toll free.
After breakfast, we went for a city tour, visited the famous historical Arch de Triomphe ; went up the Eiffel Tower.
After lunch, the ladies had a great time shopping at Lafayette Gallery, the largest shopping complex in Europe.
Going to Paris without trying escargot (French snail) would be incomplete. So for dinner, we had escargot and red wine. Tasted good. Its texture is like abalone and also a bit like squid, very Q. This molluscs is cooked with butter, garlic and sauce. If at home, I wouldn’t try eating snail at all!
At night we had another river cruise on the Seine River to enjoy the night scenery of Paris and of course the Eiffel Tower.
