Then, of course, the chocolate. Who could resist Belgian chocolate at Easter! We stuff our bags with delicious treats from L’Art du Chocolat and continue to the Royal Museum of Fine Art. Their collection includes the startling Death of Marat, and the largest collection of René Magritte’s work in the world.
Leaving the gallery, the walk towards the city is stunning.
We couldn’t continue to Amsterdam without sampling hot chips in the place they were invented. Apparently the person who nicknamed them ‘french fries’ just couldn’t spot a Belgian accent. Poirot would disapprove.
It was another three hours to Amsterdam. But we were grateful we’d stopped, even though it was only for a few hours.
