I’ve just spent the last 2 days in Brussels for work and I’m left asking myself this question: why did I ever leave? First of all I know so many people there – I keep on bumping into people I know in the street. That never happens in London. Yesterday I even managed to use 4 different languages in one day. The bars and cafÃ©s are pleasant, and the place does not cost a fortune in the way London does. In some strange way it just seems to be right, it just feels like the place I should be. OK, I’ve spent a decent 3 years in London – there have been many good aspects to life. But I don’t get that buzz from it somehow.
UPDATE – translation into Flemish provided here.
