Whatever.

I guess I was naïve enough to believe that Belgian authorities would actually enforce their ban on smoking in all public places – including bars and restaurants – that was supposed to take effect on January 1st.

On New Year’s eve, Cécile and I were very unpleasantly surpised to see revelers light up, probably in a gesture of defiance, right before midnight. So yeah, thank you smokers, thanks so much for ruining my dessert and what could have been the conclusion of a perfect night out in Brussels. 🙁
