My what big...

Three delectables of Antwerp:

Lange Wappe (in front of Het Steen) is a statue from Antwerpen folklore about a giant who sounds a bit like Paul Bunyan's evil Belgian brother - he taunts drunks, cheats at games with children, laughs like the devil, and if Wikipedia is correct he also steals great milk...

mmm…Carolus, a dark Belgian brew.  This was recommended to me by the bartender at a little pub with a massive selection of beer.

...and one massive pot of mussels in a delicious white wine sauce, yum!  This was dinner at an Italian restaurant (however practically EVERYWHERE had mussels) just in front of the Cathedral of Our Lady.  It was delicious and picturesque.

OMAM Antwerpen

Took a quick, short trip to Antwerp, Belgium to see the sights and eat some waffles, but mainly to see Of Monsters and Men in concert.  It was incredible!
The Openlucht Theatre Antwerpen, Belgium


Incredibly (multi-) talented musician: trumpet, accordion, piano, drums, and vocals.  At one point, she was playing the trumpet and the piano simultaneously.

 (Well, at least a Roman Candle...)

 And this is a picture of a lonesome pea that was left on the table after dinner:
