    Had a 2 1/2 hour of Antwerp highlights with Daniel.  I would say it was just average. Probably because I was disappointed with Antwerp - some nice old buildings but Daniel didn't do much to make it interesting.  The highlight was the Cathedral with its collection of paintings which Daniel did know quite a lot about.
