Diamnond Heists and V-1 Bombs

Antwerp, Belgium

Here is the story of the clever Italian who used hair spray to make off with 350,000,000 euros worth of Antwerp's uncut diamonds.

Another little known fact is how Hitler rained 6,400 V-1 and V-2 missiles on Antwerp for no really good reason. Antwerp got more of these than London.

I can report that Belgian beer is very good.

We move to Bruge today. The cult movie, "In Bruge" piqued our interest in the city.

Only three more days and we fly out Sunday unless we decide to change our return tickets and stay a few months as elderly Eurotrash.
