Just after checking in

Just after checking into our hotel in Antwerp (it was actually a bed and breakfast called Charles Rogier XI...very highly recommended), I flipped on the television to check out Flemish television. On one of the stations, I encountered an unusual game show involving Tetris. A man was asking a woman trivia questions. When she answered correctly, she was allowed to position one Tetris piece, scoring points for completing rows. It was one of the weirdest things I'd ever seen.

Pictures from the Charles Rogier XI:

- A view of our room, including the small deer head on the wall.

- Detail of dressmakers dummy that was in our room. I love the texture on this thing.

- The bathtub in our bathroom. The bathroom was as large again as the rest of the room.

- The staircase leading down from our room. The door on the landing led to our bathroom.
