So, this was again a slow week so I decided to to an end of the week update – with photos and everything.
My work this week mainly consisted in reading on the topics discussed at Strasbourg (human rights, wine, medicinal devices, fisheries and the reduction of the fleet…) – some topics were fun, some not so much.
In the office there was just one assistant this week (the other two were in Strasbourg and they came back on Friday) so the atmosphere was relaxed.
After work one day, Nike (intern) and I went for a walk around the town and I again became aware of just how damned BEAUTIFUL this city is – AND we had waffles – and OH MY GOD they were GOOD! Also, my roommate and I had sushi – not bad. All in all a very pleasant week.
On my walks through the town (to get to Monk) I came across a street that is almost all Asian stores 🙂 such fun window displays:
Also – really scary dolls on the bottom shelf here!
Also, there were mmmmmmmmushrooms
When I got to Monk, inspiration hit me (while I was drinking cherry flavoured beer – this one wasn’t sweet at all, which was a pleasant surprise)
And, halfway through the beer, a waiter comes into the pub pushing their beer-delivery vehicle 🙂
The weekend was marked by a party that Pavo, one of the assistants, was throwing for his birthday – he got a surprise birthday present – lamb and spring onions. It is safe to say he was pleasantly surprised. In addition to the food (there was prosciutto as well) there was A LOT of alcohol involved. Also present – Croatian songs, many cute Croatian guys ( 😉 ) and many good looking Croatian women.
There was also gentlemanly behavior – Ivan (one of the interns) was such a gentleman that he lost twice to women in fussball. That was so nice of him.
There is one thing I will say about the Croatian people in Brussels – they know how to party!
The weekend for me ended by trying to regain consciousness at my favourite pub by drinking coffee, and when that did not work (coffee here is too weak for my taste) I switched back to the old remedy (the hair of the dog and all that shit).
That’s all for this week 🙂
More to come tomorrow
