The Scottish Invade Belgium
This is Jack and Aide (nickname for Adam). They are two of tens of thousands of Scotts that invaded Brussels on my first day in the Belgium capital. I had no idea when we jumped on the train from Aix to Brussels that there was an International Soccer match going on while I was there. And we all know the Europeans love their soccer.
This is Edgar and Adair. They were in charge of the music activities. The Scots took over Brussels’ Grand Place Square. They were yelling and screaming, dancing and singing. These are some really loyal folks to their soccer and their country. It was very nice to see.
There were a few brave Belgium Groups in the square and fortunately it remained very civilized, but very exciting. They were hanging from the windows, walking around shirtless in frigid weather, showing off their family’s Tartan Plaid kelts.
It was a great couple of days hanging out with Scottish people. I have to say that they may be the most friendly people on this earth. You could just stop them and ask them anything and they enjoyed sharing their culture and history with you.
Unfortunately the soccer match did not go as well as the pre game festivities did for the Scotts. After a scoreless first half the Belgium side scored two quick goals and that about did it. But I know one thing, these people enjoy life and know how to throw a party.
