Brussels is my favourite city in Europe. I will not enter into any detail now but if you want any tips on Brussels I have a few. Simply leave a comment and I will try to get back to you. Expect a post on Brussels at some point in the near future that will cover some aspects of the city yet to be determined.

The reason for this post is I noted Mark Mardell, the BBC’s “From Our Own Correspondent” is leaving and has written an interesting piece regarding the city and his time there. As a contrast, the former “FOOC” was Justin Webb who wrote a departing article 10 years ago. His tenure would have been when I lived there and much of what he said then was true. During several more recent visits to Brussels I would have to say that much has changed. Still the dog poop but there has been some definite face-lift work undertaken and there is the continued vitality and international vibrancy that makes it unique.

Meanwhile, here is Justin Webb’s take on the US.
