Getting Adjusted

Our Missions Team left for Brussels last Friday afternoon and arrived fully jetlagged on Saturday morning. With no time to rest for the weary we checked into the Van Gogh Hostel (named as such because Van Gogh lived there at one time) and went out on a 4 hour tour/prayer walk of the city. The Hostel had a cafe/bar in the lobby and an outdoor courtyard that was packed with partying backpackers until 3 AM every night. The sun doesn't set until 10:30 or so, making the nights much longer than in the US. So getting caught back up on sleep was a challenge the first two nights. One that was not made easier by the 70 degrees and no AC rooms (we happened to visit during a summer heat spell that had temperatures 15 degrees above normal for them)
