Back from Belgium!

Belgium?  What do you mean, Belgium?  I know, I know.  I was going to move into the new house and start nesting and blogging and not go anywhere.

Then I suddenly got invited to go back to Belgium and what could I say?  So less than a month after we moved in, I left the unpacked boxes behind and went across an ocean for eight days.  I'm definitely crazy. But it was wonderful, and now I am blogging about this instead!

(Oh, by the way, did you know I go there for work?  Yes, I work part-time selling diamonds and fine jewelry.  You can come see what I do here and here.  I go with my Mother-in-Law, who works at this great jewelry store, and we travel with this great group called IJO).

Scenes from Antwerp

The Cathedral at night.

Me and Joette posing in front of the famous Antwerp Train Station.



Scenes from Brussels


Atomium



Love this pic.  Rainy night in the square.

Scenes from Bruges




We took a tour of a brewery this time, so fun.


From the roof of the brewery.



Scenes from Work

Look how hard I'm working!

Standing in the Diamond District.  Not as glamorous as it sounds.

A parcel of pears.

Fancy and round parcels.

All kinds of diamonds.

Rough diamonds.  The brownish color is due to an oily coating, and doesn't reflect the final color of the cut diamonds.

This is what 9,715.70 carats of rough diamonds looks like.  Yes, you read that number right.

So that about sums it up!  I have been back for a week and I might finally be adjusted.  Will be back tomorrow with a product review.  Love y'all!
