It took me over 4 1/2 hours to get to Brussels from Paris. To be honest, I thought about skipping Brussels altogether but I am so happy I didn't. I arrived near the Bourse in Brussels and took a little stroll around the city. It was beautiful and I knew the only thing that could make this adventure better was to bust out the guitar. I decided the best place to set up was in front of the the Grand Palace. This turned out to be an awesome decision! As soon as I finished the first song, I knew it was going to be a great set. The acoustics in this plaza were absolutely amazing. It was loud and clear and the echo off the buildings across from me were perfect. The best part was people were loving the whole scenario. They were dancing and singing along and I was getting applause after each song. Towards the end of my set a group of university students came to thank me for playing, which is better than any tip.
I really wish I had more time to stay in Brussels but it is time to head to Aachen, Germany to see friends and play music for the germans!
