Travelling to Belgium part 4

Day 3

At this point, I've pretty much seen most of Brugge twice, so I don't feel like I've missed out on that much when we head home tomorrow, at an ungodly hour. We're gonna catch a train at 06:35, so we're getting our breakfast at Brussels airport.

We've tried the Belgian waffles soaked in Belgian chocolate, and we've grown somewhat tired of chips/french fries being the only version of potatoes available. Twice now I've ordered baked potatoes, and ended up with what looked suspiciously like french fries only in a slightly different shape and with a sprinkle of parsley on top. They know how to make a proper steak here, though.

I've also located a person in Brugge who didn't manage to communicate in English - a sales clerk in his late teens/early 20's at Free Record Shop. I totally found a DVD of Wrestlemania III (1987, Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant as the main card) in - check this out - their WWE section. Yeah yeah yeah - wrestling is lowbrow, fake and scripted etc.......if you plan on giving me beef for occasionally enjoying classic wrestling, just make good and damned sure that you're not a fan of something I can tear apart and totally own you over, like soccer, porned-up soaps like Sex & The City or pretty much anything involving musicians whose technical abilities are less than stellar.

I've sort of given up my lofty plans for possibly buying a sports jacket or a suit while in Brugge. The latter was deemed hopeless after I figured out that we don't have time for getting one modified, and the latter was abandoned after finding out that invariably, the cool ones were not available in my size.
