Brussels, Belgium

Rhode-Saint-Genèse, Belgium

The Wandergals, Hannah and Catherine, made it across the ocean safe and sound. They’re staying with a family friend of ours — a West Feliciana native — in suburban Brussels. Hannah writes:

Our first Belgian picnic–simple and perfect–German bread, cheese, jasmine tea and cookies.

More generosity from readers of this blog: one of you in Spain wrote to invite the Wandergals to come visit his family in their country house one weekend on this trip. How about that? You guys are great.
