“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” - Maya Angelou


first day in Belgium!

After 20 hours of traveling, I finally arrived in Belgium and it's nothing but perfect except for my lack of french. I just keep smiling and nodding haha. But Belgium is so beautiful and different from Fort Lauderdale. The first thing my host mom did when we got into town was go to this little shop to get bread and croissants and it was so delicious. Their house is pretty and has a perfect huge view of the backyard. In all the rooms upstairs they have this skylight which is like the coolest thing ever. Then dinner was just amazing. I forgot what the name is but they're kinda like meatballs and sooooo yummy. We also had frites (french fries) and I tasted my first sip of Belgian beer. I feel like this is all a dream and if it is I hope I never wake up :)
