Quote for the day came from the Daddy,
“I didn't think it would be this many hills.”
I was able to see from the plane a castle with a moat and rectangular mirror pond, and then a village with an old church in the center. There were many Turkish, Arabic, Dutch, and French signs. The weather is same as Chicago. Butte lion with 1st action packed narrated movie at the historic Waterloo Battlefield site.
We left the room right away for the train station again to Brain A’llued for a taxi ride to the Battlefield of Waterloo. The tweens enjoyed the scavenger hunt activity and the climb to Butte du Lion. They enjoyed the panoramic indoor replica of the battlefield circa 1815. We toured quickly through the “wax museum” and the lessons there were interesting from authentic uniforms, and various archeological evidence collected over the years on this site. We walked back to the bus stop near a gas station and waited successfully for the city bus which took us back to the train station. There was a short wait for the return train trip back to Brux Noord. The walk up the hotel was good for keeping us awake and the Turkish attendants at the hotel directed us just another short walk to several choices of Turkish restaurants. This is the first time I've ever ordered my Turkish meal in French. The first night was done.
