Brussels, Where Manny and Justin Joined Chocoloholics Anonymous

Mom wrote a great article on how to do short posts, so I’m going to try to do that, too.

Summer is a great time for teddy bears to travel. I went with the eternal traveler, Glenn and Justin Beaver to Brussels, the largest city and capital of Belgium.  Belgium is in Europe where everyone travels by high-speed rail.  In California we travel by high-speed car, and we get in trouble.

Brussels has a population of 1.8 million people in the metro area.

It’s nice riding trains for several reasons.

I'm bigger than Justin, so I sat by the window so the sun would get in his eyes.  (hehe - That's what I told him, anyway.)

1.  They have tables you can sit on top of and look out the window.

How much is that Teddy in the window?

2.  You can see yourself in the reflection off the window to make sure you don’t have chocolate in your teeth.

Chocolate is brain food.  My brain is in my tummy.  You can tell how smart I am because my brain is so big.

3.  You can eat the best chocolate in the world if you are in Belgium.   If no one recognizes you while you eat them, you can belong to the Chocoholics Anonymous Club.

"No, Chief.  We haven't eaten any chocolate recently."

  1. Manny, the best friend is the one with chocolate…that’s why we are best friends. Justin Beaver!

  2. If you eat too much chocolate Manny, you’ll turn into a brown bear. Ralph x
