Brussels has gorgeous shop windows with lots of temptations. Local specialties are chocolate (excellent), tapestries and other fabrics, lace, and lots and lots of beer. Everything is crazy expensive–except the beer! Even more expensive than Vienna. So, my shopping was restricted to a couple of small items at the Marolles flea market. I didn’t have my camera for that excursion, but it was lots of fun, as were the big antique/flea shops in the area. I wish we’d had more time to explore them!
