Things that are awesome - A bit of Belgium

I am not a beer drinker. I don’t like the taste. Is it just me? Because I thought most girls didn’t like beer either? Wow, I was in for a surprise when I arrived in Belgium for a six month exchange. Beer is pretty much the only thing ANYONE drinks there. In fact, everyone looked at me like I was taking crazy pills when I said that I didn’t.

Although beer is still not my drink of choice I did taste many different beers in Europe and grew to quite like some of them.

Imagine my delight when I walked into my local bottle store to find that they now stock Duvel. One of my favourite beers while I was in Belgium. What a fantastic day! Now I am able to share a little bit of my Belgian experience with my friends and family here in Durban... As an aside I always think that Duvel tastes like salami but no one else agrees. Please go out and taste some and let me know what you think.
