At different times and on different trains, most of the class made it to Brussels, Belgium for a weekend visit. We enjoyed a vast array of Belgian waffles, Belgian chocolate, Belgium fries, and beautiful Belgium Architecture. Escaping the hustle and bustle of city center, we organized a picnic at Parc du Ciniquantenaire before catching the metro back.

Mini Europe with the Atomium behind.
On Sunday, we parted ways. Some of us traveled to Mini-Europe, where we got to see Big Ben, the Eifel Tower, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa all in one place. In addition, we toured the Atomium. A giant model of an atom that boasted amazing views and a laser show at the top. It was a great weekend for everyone and an incredible opportunity to explore more of Europe during a free weekend.
