Brussels is stunning at night. The cobbled lanes sparkle like gems as you wander between incredible buildings. People are everywhere and most seem to be eating waffles or taking photos (we did both).

The jetlag overcame the mood momentarily but the promise of another waffle restored happiness. Tiredness looms over all of us and the slightest word or expression is tipping someone over the edge.

We return home today, well to our London base, and settle for a couple of weeks. The age of Europe makes NZ a comparative newborn and it is something to see. Kudos to those who were able to build in a manner that outlived them as well as many generations that came after them.
