We met for dinner twice last week. (Guess that means she didn't get tired of me after one night, lol). I love what she wanted: steak, Mexican and BBQ. To hear her describe the food in Brussels they don't know anything about beef. So the first night we went to Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse. It satisfied her steak need and we shared a bottle of wine and talked about random topics. Of course, the only photo I took was of dessert. The steak was delicious but my dessert was the star.

Being around Sarah made me realize that you take many things for granted when you live in the same place forever. She talked about the open sky and the grandness of the land. To me it is so normal to see the sky and the grandness I see as plain old flat land. What a refreshing take on things. The other thing that we take for granted is being an American. You never really think about it unless you are like Sarah and live in a different country. For all our faults, the USA is still the best place to live in the world.
I'm very happy to have finally met this woman who has kept me entertained for years with her stories about trips to Paris and South Africa, the "Sass Cobra" and living life across the ocean. Thank you Sarah for two great evenings.
