2010 World Championships, Eindhoven, Holland

I took my family along to the August, 2010 Paralympic Swimming World Championships in Eindhoven, Holland. The trip was different from most others because I took so few pictures of the swimming competition, and far more of the sights. We went on one of these organized "tours" and saw functioning windmills, cheese shops, wooden shoe factories, and a nice evening dinner on a tour boat. Perhaps the best part of the trip was a train ride into Brussels. While wandering around, we noticed a tall tower down a hill and chose to go on a short walk to investigate. What a sight greeted us in the open square as we saw incredibly beautiful buildings with ornate decoration. We even had time for a few Belgian waffels :)
