Eventually we found one. Roughly where Google said it would be. The instructions were crystal clear despite being largely not English. Laundry machine complexity is traded for operational complexity: first step is to buy tokens; you can't just pay the machine.
If you have a problem with this the solution is clear.
Luckily it worked perfectly for us. During laundry we enjoyed a pizza and a monstrous wrap at a nearby donair type place. It was very good and very hearty, laying a base for beering. So we beered. After a few beer we felt like water and went in search of a market. We found cool dormer windows and a Leffe bar along the way.
And town hall and Arnold and Stallone.
We eventually located a market. The market had, naturally, a brilliant selection of beer.
This inspired us so we chugged water and headed back to the Leffe cafe to sample Royal and Ruby variants. Both are very good. After that we went in search of food. Along the way we realized the detail on some of the old buildings is a bit staggering.
And flags are just cool.
Flemish beer stew is awesome. It can be had with pasta or various potato constructs.
After dinner we wandered about admiring the canals for a bit then stopped for beer at Fiere Margriet, land of 200+ choices. The result of having a different glass for just about every beer is impressive.
Leuvan is awesome.
