I remember as a kid getting the special treat of visiting McDonald’s and then having the awesome tasks of climbing all those stairs to see the lion.
As a field trip, the American Elementary School took us to Antwerp to the zoo. At the time, if I remember correctly, there was construction going on, I believe it might have been on a church or something like that.
I lived in Belgium for three years back in the late eighties. I loved it. When my dad’s tour was up, I didn’t want to leave.
