Bruges, Belgium. - After a generous extra few hours of sleep, we boarded the bus and went to Bruges, Belgium. We were dropped off in a beautiful park that was on the outskirts of the city. After some time of walking through the very scenic park, which included a river and a ton of gigantic trees, we made it to the city. We walked through several streets with remarkable buildings and cathedrals and ended at the historic Belfry Tower in the center of the city.

We were free to walk around the city for a few hours before we all returned to the bus. Bruges is a relatively small city, but it has a crazy amount of shops. It was fun to walk through the streets and look through the various shops and unique products.

When we finished touring the quiet/peaceful city of Bruges, we took the bus to our game against the U- 20 Belgian National team. We lost 83-73, but I'm convinced that with a bit more energy, we would have won this game. We get a rematch on Monday afternoon.
