Woke up and had breakfast. Bundled up and headed to the Museum of Ancient Art and the Museum of Modern Art which are basically in the same place. The much anticipated RenÃ© Mageritte won’t be open until June of 2009, curse the luck!
The Museum of Ancient Art had quite the collection of Peter Paul Rubens paintings. We’ve seen his work in previous travels, but it still quickens the heart to stand in front of one in person.
Many other great masters represented. Enjoyed it immensely as well as the Modern Art Museum.
After that we headed back to the hotel to recombobulate and then headed to the other side of town to visit the Comic Strip Museum which is housed in a very cool art nouveau building designed by Victor Horta.
This gave Cynthia a chance to exact her revenge on David Shephard for defaming her beloved William.
After that we headed off in search of the infamous Delirium Cafe, a bar that holds the Guinness World Record certificate for having 2,004 different beers available at all times.
We had a few lambics which were quite tasty and then headed off to dinner and then back to the hotel for some rest.
This is an awesome trip!
