From the larger group that was in Tomorrowland, five of us decided not to stay till the very end and spend a night in a Brussels hotel instead. It broke our hearts a little walking away for miles from the festival grounds to the main road with all our stuff in hand while hearing Aoki give one killer of a closer and seeing fireworks light up the sky one last time. But considering we had been sleeping in cheapass tents and haven’t bathed in almost four days, it was about time for some serious hot showers, proper furnitures of some sort for sleeping, and thrones for royalty if you know what I mean.
Arriving late at night and going back to where we came from the following afternoon (Sandro to Manila, Sofia to Amsterdam, and the rest of us to London), we didn’t have much time to see the capital city. We just made it a point to see the statue of the kid famous for endlessly peeing and do a bit of damage with a chow down of the best mussels in Brussels. See what I did there?
Being a student of Politics, it sucks not being able to see the EU and NATO headquarters which are both found in the city. What sucks even more is that I totally forgot about it while I was there. At least I already got two reasons to go back
