Thru the Lens: Antwerp

Who doesn’t enjoy going to new places to meet up with good friends? This past weekend I popped over to Antwerp for a mini reunion with some mates that I traveled with in South America. There were a lot of hugs, beers, laughs, beers, banter, beer, and drunken antics. But in between all that we managed get in a bit of culture in. Then we had more beer. In terms of sightseeing, the Grote Markt, the Antwerp Cathedral, and the FREE viewing platform atop the MAS buliding are the best things to check out in town.  Not to mention the slew of bars and cafes with top quality local brews. Sorry, the beer isn’t free.
