I’m on my way back to Paris for some more action!  It seems like I just can’t have a ‘normal’ experience there; or, maybe, this is the normal Parisian experience…

I go for a wonderful Parisian type breakfast, not just a croissant and coffee, the best ice cream/gelato that I have ever had, a Parisian dinner party, and craziness at the Eiffel Tower.

Let me know what you think! 🙂

This is from a meat market in San Sebastian, Spain.  The owner of this butcher stall saw me making a video and motioned for me to wait for a minute before he brought this cow? head out from the back.  I could not believe my eyes – wow.

I presume someone actually buys this sort of thing for a lovely satanic dinner party or just baby food Spain style.

God I love Spain! 🙂

This photo is from the Korenmarkt in Ghent, Belgium. This city really surprised me with its beauty and with the fact that most of the people in the city were actually Belgian, which is not the case for Brussels or Antwerp.

This city is the perfect mix of beautiful architecture, old-world feel, and modern young happening city. I liked this city more than Bruges in terms of feel and architecture and, if you are going through Belgium, this city is a must, even if only for a day trip.

You must go here!

In Europe they have such crazy and interesting cigarette packages.  There, they are really trying to scare people away from smoking, but, in reality, it has the effect of people showing off the new packages to their friends to see which ones they got, kind of like when you used to display your baseball or similar cards to your friends.

The effect of crazy cigarette packages is quite comical…

The movie Hostel does a good job of scaring us silly Americans into thinking that Hostels are places of sin, evil, and death, particularly death (read my Hostel in Florence – Does a Serial Killer Live Here article).  However, the truth about Hostels, at least most of them, couldn’t be farther from this characterization.
